Antisemitism and Its Opponents in Modern Poland PDF Print E-mail

Robert Blobaum


This paper summarizes the results of a collaborative research project involving fifteen scholars from the United States and Poland, whose work focuses on diverse aspects of Polish-Jewish relations from the late nineteenth century to the present. On the one hand, the work presented here synthesizes an enormous amount of recent scholarship since 1989. On the other, contributors to the project have sought to break entirely new ground in addressing issues that have not been previously featured in the existing scholarship on Polish-Jewish relations. It is our hope that the original research contained in this major collaborative effort, along with its chronological breadth, thematic depth and balanced treatment of actors, will go a long way toward improving our understanding of antisemitism in modern Poland, of the actual extent of its appeal at different moments in time, and of the nature of opposition to it from both Poles and Jews.
