Jewish Studies Center Annual Conference
Start Date: 5/2/2019 All Day
End Date: 5/2/2019
Event Description:

Presented with the Sandra Kahn Wasserman Jewish Studies Center

Poland and the Jews
A Day-Long Event

May 2, 2019
Rosalyn and Irwin Engelman Recital Hall
Free admission. Reservations for each panel required.

In 2018, Polish President Andrzej Duda signed into law legislation that makes it a crime – punishable by fines or prison – to attribute responsibility for or complicity during the Holocaust to the Polish nation or state.  This law adds another layer of complexity to Polish-Jewish history – a history stretching back over 1000 years.  Poland and the Jews is a day-long event featuring a series of panels and cultural events that consider the intertwined and fractured relations between the two communities.

The KEYNOTE SPEAKER panel is full for reservations. Please feel free to register for the remaining panels individually.

NOTE: Panel Discussions at 10am, 1pm and 3pm, are on a first-come, first-served basis. No ticket is required for panel entry. Please note, to attend the keynote address by Art Spiegelman at 6pm, you must have a ticket. Tickets are available for pick up at the box office starting at noon the day of the conference. Seats occupied from earlier panels cannot be reserved. A ticket will be the only means of entry. Tickets are available first to those who have already made reservations. Others are welcome to join the waiting list in-person at the box office.  Those on the list will be accommodated in the order in which they signed up at 6pm.
