Jews and their Neighbours in Eastern Europe - A History of Endless Conflict?

A One-Day Conference of the Institute for 

Polish–Jewish Studies 

in association with the Polish Cultural Institute and the Institute of Jewish Studies, University College London 

15 December 2011, at the Hallam Conference Centre, 44 Hallam Street, London w1w 6jj and the Polish Embassy, 47 Portland Place, London w1b 1jh 

Relations between Jews and their neighbours in Eastern Europe have long been perceived as existing in a permanent state of conflict. Focusing on commonalities rather than differences enables contributors to this conference to counter that image and also to highlight moments and modes of reciprocal influence and exchange, making a valuable contribution to the discussion of inter-group relations as well as to Polish Jewish history.

The conference marks the launch of

Edited by Israel Bartal, Antony Polonsky and Scott Ury.
