We would also like to remind you that our project, „Linked by history. Polish-Jewish relationships in the Polish territories”, comprises not only workshops and conferences, but also a series of publications related to the subject of Polish-Jewish relationships in Polish territories with a particular focus on the last century. The aim of the works developed within the project is to present the multi-cultural nature of the Polish Republic, using the example of mutual relationships between the Polish and Jewish communities, as well as an attempt to finds answers to questions such as: How did the relationships between these communities shape over the centuries? Was there a community of citizens which transgressed the divisions? What was the development of civic identity, culture and a sense of responsibility for one’s country? How did the emergence of political anti-Semitism and nationalism impact the Polish-Jewish relationships? How did the mutual relationships look during the difficult 20th century?
This Autumn, we will publish the first volume of our series — Brothers, foreigners or fellow citizens. Debates on Judaism and its followers in the Polish territories and in Europe by Professor Jan Doktór.
