Subject: [Warsaw-Discuss] Panel at POLIN Museum prior to the

6 pm, Saturday Night, August 4, 2018, just prior to the Conference, come
visit the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews (a 30 minute walk from
the Hilton Hotel and Conference Center).


Panel: What Do We Really Think?: Stereotypes in the Polish-Jewish

This panel addresses the challenges and opportunities experienced by those
active in preserving Jewish memory in Poland. As recent developments
demonstrate, long-held stereotypes and historical animosities, compounded
by profound national and personal trauma and loss, make the effort to
create dialogue and mutual understanding between Jews and non-Jewish Poles
both essential and potentially explosive. For contemporary Poles; for the
descendants of Polish Jews; and for those from other communities who
contribute from a variety of motives and backgrounds, the long, tragic
history of the Jewish community in Poland shapes perceptions and attitudes.

This panel brings together different voices and viewpoints in an effort to
share insights and provoke dialogue as a necessary precondition to building
bridges and changing stereotypes.

Panelists include:
Moderator Glenn Kurtz, author of "Three Minutes in Poland"
Witek Dabrowski, Deputy Director, Brama Grodzka-Teatr NN
Zuzanna Radzik, Executive Board Member, The Forum for Dialogue Among
Leora Tec, Founder & Director, Bridge To Poland
