The Search for Retribution as a Community Building Process Among Jews and Poles in the Postwar World. National and Transnational Aspects.

 

PERSONThis project discusses the cross-border aspect of the individual search for retribution for crimes committed during the Second World War in East-Central Europe. It focusses specifically on the immediate postwar response of Jewish prewar Polish citizens to individual wartime norm-violating behaviour, showing how people moved just before the Iron Curtain came down, how they dealt with their memories, and how they would go on to build new communities abroad. It thus focusses on individual agency in seeking revenge, taking into consideration gender, age, social status, and geographic location as key aspects in shaping this search.

 

Katarzyna Person is an assistant professor at the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw specialising in Eastern European Jewish History. She has published over 20 peer-reviewed articles and three books dealing with the Holocaust and its aftermath in occupied Poland.
