Jewish Poland: Difficult Questions and Ripple Effects
A Workshop By Leora Tec, Sponsored By The Generosity Of the Lexington Council for the Arts
Jews who have a family history in Poland may have complicated feelings about the Polish part of their identities. Must they reject the place that was the homeland of their ancestors for hundreds of years because it is the country where 90% of their brethren were murdered? Many Americans can easily claim their hyphenated identities: Irish-American, Italian-American. But what do Jews of Polish descent do with their Polishness? Many simply ignore it and claim only the Jewish part of themselves.
Likewise non-Jewish Poles may feel uncomfortable about framing their role in history. Do Jews or others blame them for what the Germans did? What about what their families suffered during World War II? And what if anti-Semitism is a part of their legacy? All these are difficult questions which led to this workshop.
Date: Sunday March 19th
Time: 2-4pm Eastern Time
Place: Arlington, MA (Details provided when you reserve your spot)
