A New Itinerary

A panel discussion on Jewish Heritage Tours to Poland

An official event of the 22nd Jewish Culture Festival in Krakow

Date: Saturday, July 7, 16:30

Location: Galicia Jewish Museum

ul. Dajwór 18


Open to the Public – All welcome to join the dialogue

Each year thousands of Jewish youth are sent to Poland on organised death camp tours to commemorate the Holocaust. However well-intentioned, the tours structurally and ideologically reinforce negative stereotypes about Poles and modern Poland. This panel discussion will focus on an alternative approach, Jewish Heritage Tours, whose participants are able to honour the memory of those who perished while learning about the places they lived. The panellists will describe their personal experiences of establishing the Heritage Tours, the rationale behind them, and the impact they have on Jewish youth.https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/images/cleardot.gif

Helise E. Lieberman, Director of the Taube Center for the Renewal of Jewish Life in Poland

Dr Karen Underhill, Department of Baltic and Slavic Languages and Literature, University of Illinois at Chicago
