International Conference, December 2-4, 2015, Warsaw

The date 1967/1968 became recognized as a key moment in Jewish history, which is, however, differently located in various national narratives. The events that took place around this time in Israel, in the former Soviet bloc countries, Western Europe, and the US are often read in the immediate context of their respective local political configurations. Diagnosing the limitations of such an approach, we would like to explore the transnational political aspects of 1967/1968 in Jewish history, but even more importantly its broader cultural and social dimensions.

  • December 2: Museum of the History of Polish Jews POLIN, ul. Anielewicza 6
  • December 3-4: Staszic Palace, ul. Nowy Świat 72
