North American Tour

Updated: Mar 20

As part of my work with the POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw, I've been giving talks and meeting with various organizations around the United States and Canada. The goal of this project is to share what the Museum has to offer with North American audiences. Despite the fantastic work the Museum has done over the past decade, it is still relatively unknown on the other side of the ocean.

Over the past few months I've been talking about East European Jewish history at universities, synagogues, JCCs, and museums.

Now coming up over the next three weeks, I'll be travelling across the country to talk mostly about the Warsaw Ghetto Uprising and share all the unique material our Museum uncovered in the process of designing a temporary exhibition for the 80th anniversary of the Uprising.
