The Polish Underground and the Jews | seminarium

Next Wednesday, on 14 April 2021 at 3 p.m. CEST, we are holding an online seminar entitled “The Polish Underground and the Jews.”

Prof. Joshua Zimmerman from Yeshiva University will present the subject with the assistance of co-lecturer Dr. Martyna Rusiniak-Karwat from the Pilecki Institute’s Center for Totalitarian Studies.


Using a variety of archival documents, wartime testimonies, and postwar memoirs, Prof. Zimmerman will present the situation of the Polish Underground State in the context of the extermination policies introduced by Nazi Germany, and its reaction to the Holocaust of European Jews.


Prof. Zimmerman is the author of the book “The Polish Underground and the Jews, 1939–1945”, published in 2015 by Cambridge University Press. Dr. Martyna Rusiniak-Karwat is the scientific editor of the Polish edition (2018) entitled “Polskie Państwo Podziemne i Żydzi w czasie II wojny światowej.”


The online seminar in the form of a webinar will be held in English on, with simultaneous translation into Polish available. Register here:
