Coming to Terms with the Holocaust in Poland: From Soul-Searching to Backlash

Wednesday, October 23 at 7 PM

After decades of communist marginalization of the Holocaust, Poland initially emerged as a leader in coming to terms with its difficult past. However, now there is a backlash in Poland against recognizing any guilt. A 2018 law penalizing statements on the alleged complicity of Poland in the Nazi crimes caused an international controversy, so the government revoked its most disturbing provisions. But this topic remains a key battlefield in the culture war that divides Poland today. Dariusz Stola, the Former Director of the Polin Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw, is a prominent historian and professor at the Polish Academy of Sciences.

Kindertransport – Rescuing Children on the Brink of War

On exhibit July 1 – December 31

Created by Yeshiva University Museum and the Leo Baeck Institute, the exhibition illuminates the story of the Kindertransport (German for “Children’s Transport”), the organized rescue effort that brought thousands of Jewish children from Nazi Europe to Great Britain in the late 1930s.

The exhibition explores the children’s difficult and often heartbreaking journeys through original artifacts, personal stories, and engaging media. Artifacts from local Detroit Kinder are included in this captivating exhibit.

The exhibition was made possible by the generous support of The Azrieli Foundation, The David Berg Foundation, The Koret Foundation, the Gruss Hirsch Family Foundation, and by Anonymous. Additional support was provided by the Wolfensohn Family Foundation, Robert M. Kaufman, Temple Shalom of Scotch Plains (NJ), and by patrons and friends of Yeshiva University Museum and the Leo Baeck Institute.
