We are happy to present to you materials in English that were created as part of our Virtual Connections to Material Jewish Heritage in Poland more about the project
Historic Synagogues in Poland
and their cultural and educational potential
|In a family home in Florida, a 3-minute film from before World War II is found that reconnects a grandchild with his grandfather’s hometown of Nasielsk, Poland. This event begins a long journey and inspires a book “Three Minutes in Poland: Discovering a Lost World in a 1938 Family Film”, which was named the “Best Book of 2014” by The New Yorker, The Boston Globe, and National Public Radio.
|The grandchild is author Glenn Kurtz and he will share his story as well as thoughts on material Jewish heritage in Poland in conversation with Helise Lieberman, who moved from the United States to Poland to establish the first Jewish school after the fall of Communism and who being the director of the Taube Center for Jewish Life & Learning Foundation has for many years run projects on Jewish heritage education.
|We are happy to share with you the recording of our first webinar in the series Synagogues: Historical Traces- on the history of the buildings and their communities. We encourage you to watch the session which is a conversation with Professor Thomas C.Hubka (Professor Emeritus from the Department of Architecture, University of Wisconsin−Milwaukee, author of Resplendent Synagogue: Architecture and Worship in an 18th century Polish Community and Professor Marcin Wodziński (Department of Jewish Studies at the University of Wrocław, author of Historical Atlas of Hasidism, Hasidism.
