Righteous or Shmaltsovniks (blackmailers)? Polish Attitudes towards Jews during the Second World War

Discussion in the series: “(In)separable. Difficult Subjects in Polish-Jewish Relations”

What were the attitudes of Poles towards Jews during the Second World War? What were the historical, cultural, and societal conditionings which determined them? Is the memory of the Righteous Among the Nations instrumentalized in Poland? If so, does this only apply to Poland?

Discussion participants: Anna Bikont, Prof. Dariusz Libionka
Led by: Adam Szostkiewicz (“Polityka”)

In Polish.
Free admission.
