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.
