“Rising from the Rubble” 1000 years of Polish Jewish History and the POLIN Museum
April 5, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm EDT
Free Event Co-sponsored by Classi Lectures in partnership with Beth Tikvah Synagogue in Honour of Yom Hashoah
Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett will talk about the history and memory of Polish Jewish life as depicted in the POLIN Museum.
The POLIN Museum is a modern institution of culture – it is a historical museum which presents the 1000 years of Jewish life in the Polish lands. It is also a place of meeting and dialogue among those who wish to explore the past and present Jewish culture, those eager to draw conclusions for the future from Polish-Jewish history, and finally those who are ready to face the stereotypes and oppose xenophobia and nationalistic prejudices that threaten today’s societies. By promoting the ideas of openness, tolerance and truth, POLIN Museum contributes to the mutual understanding and respect among Poles and Jews.
This program is co-sponsored by Gayle and Alf Kwinter in memory of Mila Zalman z”l and Faigla Kwinter z”l
Also coming Monday, April 19 @ 2:30pm The Art of Mayer July – Barbara’s father!
