Two Fatherlands? Zionist Youth and the Politics of Belonging in 1930s Poland
Dr. Daniel K. Heller, Hazel D. Cole Fellow in Jewish Studies, Jackson School of International Studies, is an expert on Eastern European Jewish history and the history of Israel. By exploring the performances of a Polish-Zionist alliance, Dr. Heller will not only shed new light on the complex politics of national belonging among Jews coming of age in interwar Poland, but will also propose new ways of understanding Polish-Jewish relations in the period.
This event is organized by UW Jackson School Stroum Jewish Studies Program and co-sponsored by UWPSEC and the Slavic Department.
