Stories of pogroms often evoke heated discussions; they either bring people together or divide them into various groups. Questions are asked on the causes, blame and responsibility. In his book, Dr Artur Markowski poses yet another question: where did the narrative on Russians / Germans organizing pogroms originate? 


25 February (Monday), 6 PM, language: PL, free admission

Debate with the participation of Prof. Małgorzata Domagalska (Łódź University) and Prof. Adam Czesław Dobroński (University of Białystok) will be chaired by Dr Michał Trębacz of POLIN Museum.
