Having suspended our flagship program, Taube Jewish Heritage Tours, we launched #TJHTalks in April 2020 as an interactive way to maintain contact with past and future tour participants and to broaden the Center’s audience.
#TJHTalks is a series of monthly webinars that brings together luminaries of the Polish Jewish world to discuss critical issues in the field, both contemporary and historical. The series, which will continue even when travel is possible again, offers our growing global audience intellectual access to Jewish Poland.
Special guests have so far included the Chief Rabbi of Poland, Michael Schudrich, and Professors Deborah Lipstadt, Dariusz Stola, Samuel Kassow, Antony Polonsky, Marcin Wodziński, Natalia Aleksiun, Glenn Dynner, and Barbara Kirshenblatt- Gimblett. Topics have ranged from contemporary Holocaust denial to the resilience of Jewish museums, from gender in Polish Jewish studies to resistance in the Warsaw Ghetto.
