Piłsudski and the Jews of Poland

Zapraszamy na wykład prof. Joshui D. Zimmermana poświęcony relacjom Józefa Piłsudskiego z polskimi Żydami. Spotkanie odbędzie się w języku angielskim i nie będzie tłumaczone.

Józef Piłsudski, one of the fathers of Polish independence, Marshal of Poland, prime minister and Chief of State, was born on December 5, 1867. Among the many aspects of his political activity, one cannot ignore his relations with the Jewish community. The Marshal treated Jews as equal citizens of Poland, and his attitude towards them was rather positive, but this did not necessarily translate into specific political actions.  The Jews themselves assessed Piłsudski differently depending on their political option, but generally, they saw in him hope for life in a country free from anti-Semitism.

On December 6, Prof. Joshua D. Zimmerman, author of the biography of Józef Piłsudski, Jozef Pilsudski. Founding Father of Modern Poland, will give a lecture about Marshal’s relations with Polish Jews.

The lecture will be held in English and will not be translated. The meeting will be broadcast on the JHI Facebook profile.
