Het Verbarium

On Monday, April 24 from 11:30-13:00 Prof. Edyta Gawron (historian and professor of Jewish Studies at Jagiellonian University in Kraków) will lead  a special seminar called "Politics and the Holocaust in Modern Poland."

We will discuss the Cleveringa lectures of Professors Jan Grabowski and Barbara Engelking, how the Holocaust continues to be politicized in Poland and what this politicization means for both the memory and history of the Holocaust and the Second World War more generally. Prof. Gawron is a noted expert on these topics and we are thrilled that she can join us for this special event.

Lunch, of course, will be served.

If you would like to join this seminar, please RSVP to s.a.cramsey@hum.leidenuniv.nl by Wednesday April 19.
