Exposition « Shoulder to shoulder? Jewish involvement in Poland’s aspirations for independence 1794-1918 »
Until March 26, 2023 at the Emanuel Ringelblum Jewish Historical Institute
This exhibition examines the participation of Polish Jews in the struggle for independence from the end of the 18th century to the end of the First World War. What particularly motivated these struggles, especially the patriotic fibre, and when did they sometimes feel excluded by certain ambitions from these struggles? What were the links between citizens of different faiths united under the same uniform? 150 objects are presented: texts, photos and paintings. Amongst the characters honoured, Berek Joselewicz, war hero for the fatherland and other lesser known figures.
