Revisiting Memory: Facts and Myths About the Jews in Poland and Russia

Feb 17, 2009 • 7:30 pm ET
  • This event has passed.

Though most European and American Jews can trace their lineage back to Poland or Russia, the history of the experiences of the Jewish people in these two countries is shrouded in mystery, myth, and stereotypes. Drawing on his forthcoming three-volume study, The Jews in Poland and Russia, Dr. Polonsky addresses these common misconceptions and creates a more complete understanding of the Jewish experience in the region.

Award-winning author of numerous articles and publications on Polish-Jewish issues, Dr. Antony Polonsky is the Albert Abramson Professor in Holocaust Studies at Brandeis University in Massachusetts and the 2008-2009 Ina Levine Invitational Scholar at United States Holocaust Memorial Museum’s Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies.
