Room 2022 202 S. Thayer Map
Poland has witnessed a resurgence of interest in things Jewish, including a renewed attention to the history and culture of Yiddish. This trend is visible in the creation of new museums and institutes, a newfound interest in Klezmer music, new translation initiatives, and new understandings of the place and politics of Yiddish in Polish history. This panel will explore various facets of this phenomenon, offering insights and raising questions about the implications of the “Yiddish turn” in Poland today.
