Polish Jews on Vacation: Leisure and Identity in the Interwar Period

30 January, 2023 at 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


By the 1920s, the idea of a hiking or ski trip in the Tatra Mountains, taking the waters at fashionable spas, or savouring Polish grown oranges in the southern town of Zaleszczyki was appealing to all Jews, whether they came from big cities or small shtetlach, and whether they were secular or deeply observant. In this talk Professor Madej-Krupitski will explore the ways in which Polish Jews embraced tourism en masse, a cultural activity that transcended religious, linguistic and social boundaries among Polish Jewries.



Attendees in the US: this talk starts at 11.00am (Pacific Time)/ 2.00pm (Eastern Time).

Please note that booking closes 2 hours before the event. The Zoom link will be sent out on 29 January, and again 90 minutes before the event. If you have not received the link after that time, please contact bethany@sirmartingilbertlearningcentre.org
