Dr. Jan Grabowski will discuss the complicity of the Polish “blue” policemen in the persecution and murder of Polish Jewry.
Dr. Grabowski will also discuss the current Polish government’s passing of “History Laws,” imposing harsh penalties upon those found guilty of “slandering the good name of the Polish nation” by addressing Polish collaboration or collusion with the Nazis.
Jan Grabowski is a Professor of History at the University of Ottawa and a founding member of the Polish Center for Holocaust Research in the Polish Academy of Sciences. Professor Grabowski’s book, Hunt for the Jews: Betrayal and Murder in German-Occupied Poland, was awarded the Yad Vashem International Book Prize for 2014. In 2016-17, Grabowski was the Ina Levine Senior Invitational Scholar in the Jack, Joseph, and Morton Mandel Center for Advanced Holocaust Studies at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. His most recent work, Night Without End: Fate of Jews in Selected Counties of Occupied Poland, 2 vols. (Jan Grabowski and Barbara Engelking, editors), was published in April 2018 in Warsaw, in Polish.
