One Day Workshop

The Holocaust in Poland and its Aftermath under Communism

Tuesday, April 30, 2019

9:00 AM to 3:30 PM

This workshop will focus on Jewish life in Poland in the aftermath of World War II, the trauma of exile and issues of representation. Over 90% of the Jews in Poland were murdered during the Holocaust. In the immediate aftermath of the war, surviving Polish Jews grappled with returning to their homes. Those that did faced many challenges, including violence and living under a communist system dominated by Moscow. Filmmaker Marian Marzynski was smuggled out of the Warsaw Ghetto as a child and in 1968 was expelled from Poland in the wake of a government-sponsored "anti-Zionist" campaign. For almost 50 years he has been making documentary films, many times turning the camera on himself. In this presentation, he will talk about his life experience and show clips from his films.
