Kim, czym, kiedy, gdzie i dlaczego są polscy Żydzi? Wyobrażanie, konstruowanie i zawłaszczanie Żydów polskich.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article examines the different ways that various communities of scholars imagine, research and teach about "Polish Jewry." Focusing on scholarship written in Israel, Poland and the United States over the past generation or two, the article argues that each particular community of scholars constructs a particular version of Polish Jewry and that each of these versions is deeply influenced by contemporary social, political and communal needs and demands. As a result, scholars very often end up constructing radically different versions of Polish Jewish history and society. These scholarly differences reflect many of the challenges and difficulties related to researching and writing about the history and culture of Polish Jews since 1989.
