Michał Trębacz, PhD., is a researcher in Poland at the center for Jewish Research, University of Łódź and the Institute of National Remembrance in Łódź.
Dr. Trebacz is part of growing number of Polish scholars focusing on Jews in Poland in the pre-war period, including their politics. He will give us perspective on the reasons for the special interest in Polish Jews and their recent findings about some of the leading personalities, including Szmul Zygielbojm and his relationship with Jan Karski. He will also discuss Poland’s current position on the Syrian refugees against the background of the Soviet period and earlier, giving us some perspectives on the present Polish leadership.
