2010 Summer Research Workshop: The Politics of Jewish Spaces: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Preservation, Memory and Renewal in Post-Holocaust Poland - Friday, July 30, 2010
Since the 1980's, Poland's Jews and non-Jews have been engaged in restoring Jewish synagogues and cemeteries, recreating Jewish streets, and constructing Jewish Museums. A "Jewish" presence in the urban landscape has reemerged as well as new ways to use it.
Workshop participants examine the Polish impulse to restore, preserve, memorialize, and celebrate Jewish spaces and the implications of the cultural politics of Jewish sites in Poland after the Holocaust, particularly at the present time.
