Between July 22 and September 12, 1942, the German authorities deported or murdered around 300,000 Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto. In April–May 1943 the underground organisations organised an armed uprising, which was suppressed with unprecedented brutality. This talk will reflect on the life and memory of the Warsaw ghetto seventy years after its liquidation.
Paweł Śpiewak is one of the best known and most media-active public intellectuals in Poland. He is also a sociologist, historian, author and former politician and, since 2011, he has been the Director of the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw. His sociological interests cover a broad range of liberal-conservative social and philosophical analyses. He is known in Poland and Europe as author of numerous books, including Ideologies and Citizens (1991), Anti-Totalitarianism – A Polish Debate (2003), The Promise of Democracy (2004), Memory After Communism (2005), Five Books of Tora – Commentaries (2012), and the widely acclaimed Zydokomuna (2012) that demolishes the anti-Semitic stereotype of pro-communist Jews in Poland.
He is in Australia as a guest of the Australian Institute of Polish Affairs (AIPA).
