"established in 1986 by the Institute for Polish-Jewish Studies, has acquired a well-deserved reputation for publishing authoritative material on all aspects of Polish Jewry. Contributions are drawn from many disciplines - history, politics, religious studies, literature, linguistics, sociology, art, and architecture-and from a wide variety of viewpoints. "Nobody can doubt that systematic study of Polish-Jewish history is of the highest scholarly interest.... Polin, having many prominent Polish and Jewish scholars among its contributors, will be able to inject a new life into those studies. All scholars in the humanities will certainly hail it as a most welcome event." Leszek Kolakowski

"Research into the Holocaust has been extensive: tens of thousands of books and hundreds of thousands of articles have been written about it, and it has given riseto animated historicaldebates. The murder of the Jews of Europe was carried out primarily in the eastern part of the continent where most of the population andorganizations of European Jewry were concentrated. This chapter traces the evo-lution of research into east European Jewry during the Holocaust, concentratingon those works which consider the Jews not merely as victims of German per-secution but also as individuals and members of families and active communitiesand discuss the reality of their complicated lives. It examines which topics wereimportant to early researchers into the subject and how and why these changed.""

9. The Leo Baeck Institute – New York, Berlin

The Leo Baeck Institute was founded in 1955 by leading German-Jewish émigré intellectuals including Martin Buber, Max Grunewald, Hannah Arendt and Robert Weltsch, who were determined to preserve the vibrant cultural heritage of German-speaking Jewry that was nearly destroyed in the Holocaust. They named the Institute for Rabbi Leo Baeck, the last leader of Germany’s Jewish Community under the Nazi regime, and appointed him as the Institute’s first President, overseeing independent centers in New York, London, and Jerusalem. LBI – New York is a founding partner of the Center for Jewish History in Manhattan and maintains an office in Berlin and a branch of its archives at the Jewish Museum Berlin.

Year Book - The Leo Baeck Institute Year Book is the pre-eminent journal on Central European Jewish history and culture. This well-established publication covers cultural, economic, political, social and religious history, the impact of antisemitism and the Jewish responses to it.

The Year Book is the publication of the Leo Baeck Institute, founded in 1955 for the study of the history and culture of German-speaking Central European Jewry.

‘‘The blood of our martyrs, our relatives, is still fresh. It screams to us and calls uponus not to forget!’’ the Central Jewish Historical Commission inLodz exhorted the100,000-150,000 Holocaust survivors still in Poland in October 1946.Whether theyhad ‘‘spent the German occupation in ghettos, camps, on the Aryan side, hidden inthe woods, [or] ¢ghting in partisan units’’, every surviving Jewish woman or man10should provide the Historical Commission with a full account of their personalexperiences during these years. As ‘‘precious material on our bloody history’’, theseaccounts needed to be ‘‘carefully collected and immortalised’’. The Commissionalso sought ‘‘pictures, documents, community registers, diaries and otheritems[...].This is a duty for every single individual. We hope that everyone will15understand the importance of this and will ful¢l this duty towards theJewish past’’.

10. East European Memory Studies [2009-2013]

In collaboration with the Research Project, Memory at War: Cultural Dynamics in Poland, Russia and Ukraine Supported by the HERA Joint Research Programme

The Research Group in East European Memory Studies is a transdisciplinary forum concerned with the dynamic interplay between memory, culture, and politics in today’s Eastern Europe. We seek to understand the peculiar regimes of memory and forgetting established by the socialist states of the former Soviet block and the secularist state in Turkey. We also want to situate these intertwined pasts and presents in the new European order. We aim to employ an array of approaches, partially borrowed and partially invented, in a series of dialogues between scholars and practitioners in history, literature, political science, psychology, sociology, and anthropology. We plan to address such questions as:

  • How has the state used various practices of memory – recalling not only past glory and achievement but also deportations, political repression, and genocide – to promote independent nationhood?
  • How do the memories of Nazi rule and Communist rule shape international relations in Europe?
  • How do museums, monuments, literature, film, digital media, and the unsignified ghosts of the past bear witness to the historical trauma?
  • What is the contribution of East European memories to identity formation in a united and uniting Europe?

In the past years our series of discussions were organised according to five broad thematic areas:

  • Memory and Identity (Michaelmas 2009)
  • Memory and Theory (Lent and Easter 2010)
  • Memory and Guilt (Michaelmas 2010)
  • Memory and Resistance (Lent 2011)
  • Memory and Liberation (Easter 2011)

In recent years there has been a growing interest in the study of war and genocide, not from a traditional military history perspective, but within the framework of social and cultural history.
This series offers a forum for scholarly works that refl ect these new approaches.

  • Miasta śmierci. Sąsiedzkie pogromy Żydów, Wydawnictwo RM, 2015
    Z recenzji: "Kilka lat temu dzięki głośnej książce Jana Tomasza Grossa w polskiej świadomości pojawił się temat Jedwabnego. Jednak – jak szybko się okazało – był to jedynie wierzchołek góry lodowej. Wąsosz, Radziłów, Szczuczyn, Jasionówka, to tylko niektóre miasteczka i wsie, w których od 1941 roku dochodziło do pogromów ludności żydowskiej. Pogromów tym tragiczniejszych, że dokonywanych przez sąsiadów, którzy przez długie lata co prawda nie żyli ze swoimi żydowskimi znajomymi w przyjaźni, ale wzajemna niechęć nie przeszkadzała w funkcjonowaniu społeczności.
    Książka Mirosława Tryczyka wprowadza do polskiej historii oraz świadomości społecznej zupełnie nowe informacje na temat zbrodni dokonanych na obywatelach polskich pochodzenia żydowskiego w latach 1941-1942. Na podstawie akt procesów toczących się w oparciu o tzw. Dekrety Sierpniowe, zeznań świadków żydowskich i polskich zebranych w latach powojennych, Żydowskich Ksiąg Pamięci spisanych przez ocalałych z Zagłady, dokumentacji postępowań Głównej Komisji Badania Zbrodni Hitlerowskich w Polsce i rozmów przeprowadzonych podczas własnych badań autor buduje prawdziwy obraz wydarzeń, o których nie możemy zapomnieć."

    Z recenzji: "Dziadkowie brali udział w zbrodniach. Rodzice milczeli. Wnuki muszą o tym opowiedzieć, by ich dzieci tego nie powtórzyły. Mirosław Tryczyk odkrył, że jego dziadek, ten sam, któremu uwielbiał siadać na kolanach, uwikłany był w zbrodnie na niewinnych osobach. Jak się uporać z taką prawdą? Drzazga. Kłamstwa silniejsze niż śmierć to podróż wgłąb Polski - śladem osób sobie podobnych. Które odkryły grzechy przodków i szukają języka, by o nich opowiedzieć. Trudno przyznać się do tego, że nie radzimy sobie z prawdą o naszej historii, o naszych najbliższych. Jak kochać tych, którzy zabijali?"
    "Książka Drzazga to opowieść o ludziach, którzy mają odwagę pamiętać i nie chcą już milczeć. Bo wyparte poczucie winy jest jak drzazga, która jątrzy ranę."

18. Verfolgen und Aufklären. Die erste Generation der Holocaustforschung

Crimes Uncovered. The First Generation of Holocaust Researchers

Between 1939 and 1945, the Germans and their helpers murdered six million Jews throughout Europe. The Holocaust was aimed at the extermination of people, as well as at the destruction of their culture and the veiling of all traces of these crimes.

Jewish researchers attempted to counteract this complete “eradication” even as the murders were being committed. They documented this event by gath-ering sources to visualize and remember the scale of the crimes and the exter-mination of Jewish life. In exile, as well as in life threatening conditions in the ghettos and camps, they carried out research, collected facts and preserved evi-dence of the crimes. They founded archives and committees that continued their work after the end of the war. They wanted to document who was murdered and to identify the killers. They wanted to remember the dead, to fathom the crimes, to bring the perpetrators to justice and, at the same time, they wanted to make future genocides impossible.
