Alina Skibińska, historian and Polish representative of the Holocaust Museum (USHMM) in Washington D.C., will relate the stories of Polish Jews who survived the Holocaust.


12 January, 6 PM, free admission, language: Polish

We will learn how they made their way back to their homes and why some of them subsequently decided to leave Poland forever. We will also be able to answer the question of how they have managed to deal with the obstacles they faced, including both material ones such as poverty, homelessness and unemployment, and the psychological factors such as the loss of their loved ones, loneliness and trauma.
