Where does anti-Semitism begin?
We invite you to a lecture accompanying the Warszawa, Warsze exhibition. This time we will take a closer look at a thorny issue of anti-Semitism. The notion which we so often come across is multi-faceted, and has been re-shaped and re-defined in various ways throughout the years. The lecture will reveal sources of anti-Semitism as well as contemporary manifestations of discriminatory attitudes.
The lecture will be delivered by dr Maciej Kozłowski, contributor to “Kultura” in Paris, former Polish Ambassador in Israel, vice-director of the Department of Africa and the Middle East, and plenipotentiary of the Foreign Affairs Minister for Polish-Jewish relations.
Lecture accompanies Warszawa, Warsze temporary exhibition, open between March 28 and June 30, 2014 at the Museum of the History of Polish Jews.
The lecture will be translated into English.
The admission to this event is free.
