A Talk by Professor Stanislaw Krajewski followed by a Reception

Free and Open to the Public
We are proud to welcome Professor Stanislaw Krajewski for his talk called "What Is and What is Not Presented in the Post-World War II Section of the Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw".
Professor Krajewski will discuss specific assumptions that he views were guiding the work of devising the Post-World-War II section of the exhibition at POLIN,
the museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw. He says many assumptions were operating for the whole exhibition, and applying them to the post-war period created historical, political, and moral problems.
Stanislaw Krajewski is a Polish Jewish philosopher, writer, and professor at the Institute of Philosophy of the University of Warsaw in Poland. He has been involved in research in logic and the philosophy of mathematics as well as in the philosophy of religion and interfaith dialogue. After the fall of Communism in 1989, he became involved in the revival of Jewish life by being amongst the founders of the Polish-Israeli Friendship Society and of the Polish Council of Christians and Jews.
Former member of the board of the Union of Jewish Religious Communities in Poland, International Council of the Auschwitz Camp Museum and Memorial, he worked on the post-war section of POLIN.
Co-sponsered by the Alan D. Leve Center for Jewish Studies and the UCLA Department of History.
