Shoulder to shoulder? Jewish involvement in Poland's aspirations for independence 1794-1918
Numerous circumstances caused few Jews, usually assimilated and attached to Polish identity, took up arms in the Polish uprisings.
We try to answer several questions: which processes led to the Jewish involvement in the fight for bringing Poland back on the map of Europe, and which discouraged them from the patriotic outburst? We will tell the story of the Jewish unification with the Polish majority, of the orthodox Jews who remained committed to the traditional Judaism and of the Polish prejudice.
