The Australian Institute of Polish Affairs (AIPA) invites you to a meeting with Professor Barbara Engelking from the Centre for Holocaust Research at the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences, and co-author of the book ” Night without End: The Fate of Jews in Selected Counties of Occupied Poland”, which was subject to a recent controversial judgement of Polish courts.
Professor Barbara Engelking is the author of many books related to the issues of the Holocaust. Her research focuses on the experiences of the Holocaust in the accounts of the Survivors, attempts to describe this experience also in the light of all other available sources (official and personal documents, letters, accounts, memories) and perspectives (victims, witnesses, executioners). The Centre for Holocaust Research of the Institute of Philosophy and Sociology of the Polish Academy of Sciences focuses on conducting interdisciplinary research, combining different methodologies, breaking existing patterns of describing the Holocaust, serving to reveal various cognitive perspectives and points of view, and showing the heterogeneity and ambiguity of historical matter.
Tuesday, March 23 at 19.00 (AEDT): The meeting will be held remotely via Zoom (the link will be sent after registration). Meeting in Polish
