Annamaria Orla-Bukowska Rethinking Poles and Jews: Troubled Past, Brighter Future » annamaria orla-bukowska
Is it possible for two groups of people who have a long history of conflict, violence, and negative perceptions of each other to find a way toward
reconciliation? Prof. Orla-Bukowska is a social anthropologist at the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland, and the coauthor of the 2007 book, Rethinking Poles and Jews: Troubled Past, Brighter Future. In her lecture she will return to some of the themes and problems discussed by Prof. Jan Gross at the beginning of this lecture series, sharing her research on current efforts in Poland at reconciliation and cultural bridge-building between Jews and non-Jews.
