The Memorialisation of the Jewish Heritage in Contemporary Poland: the Case of Łódź @ Cambridge Heritage Research Centre | England | United Kingdom

Lecture by Joanna Beata Michlic.

Since the fall of Communism, Łódź, the third-largest city of Poland, has embarked on a process of cultural reorientation. This process aims at reshaping it into a forward-looking twenty-first century European city. A close look at this process reveals that the reinvention of the city depends on what might be called an archaeological project of rediscovering the local pre-1939 multi-ethnic and multicultural heritage. In this lecture, Dr. Michlic examines the dynamics of the rediscovery of the Jewish heritage in Łódź from the perspective of mutual relations between a physical space and various social agents. She focuses on how the city draws on, reworks and articulates the forgotten Jewish heritage.
