The Holocaust and Coming to Terms with the Past in Post-Communist-Poland
Thursday, March 8, 7:30 pm, Romita Auditorium, Ryan Library
The silence about the Holocaust in Poland after WWII was partly the effect of Communist ideology, partly the result of the painful memory of helplessness that many Poles experienced, and partly a consequence of the shame of witnessing the often barbaric behavior of one’s own people. Dr. Jolanta Ambrosewicz, director of the Center for Holocaust Studies at the Jagiellonian University in Cracow, Poland will deliver the lecture.
