Learning to Remember: Teaching the Holocaust in Poland Today

How is the Holocaust taught to Polish students today? How have Poles come to terms with genocide in their homeland and with the complex memories of World War II?

To commemorate the 70th anniversary of the liquidation of the Lodz Ghetto and other key Holocaust events, a panel of scholars from Poland and the United States will discuss the implications of Holocaust memory in Poland today.

Joanna Podolska (Director of the Marek Edelman Center in Lodz), Magda Gross (Stanford University), and Bryan Davis (The University of Arizona) will examine trends and developments in Polish educational practices, and consider their impact on Polish students.

Moderated by Dr. Susan Crane, Associate Professor of Modern European History at the University of Arizona.

When: Monday, November 17th, 10:00 AM- 11:30 AM

Where: UA Hillel Center, 1245 E. 2nd St.

Suggested Parking: 2nd Street Garage, Southeast corner of Mountain and Second.
