The Institute of National Remembrance launches a new, annual journal dedicated to the history of the Jewish community in 20th-century Poland, preserving the memory of Polish Jews, and mutual and complex Polish-Jewish relations. As intended by the editors, the periodical serves as a forum for the exchange of current findings in the field of Jewish studies by researchers from various academic centers. The Institute organised a special press conference for the premiere of the journal.
The press conference is taking place at noon and can be joined via zoom. Here is the link to the conference: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86145934694?pwd=bGc2c1BRWkdraXc3Q2QwbDNkL0paZz09
The content of the first issue mainly includes papers on the WW2 period, covering a whole spectrum of Polish-Jewish relations during this most difficult trial. Both negative and positive experiences are dealt with. The annual journal ends with reviews of notable and sometimes controversial research studies released in recent years, reports from historical conferences, and descriptions of projects aimed at preserving the memory of Polish Jews.
The first issue of the periodical is also available online below and in the IPN’s Digital Library at przystanekhistoria.pl.
