This class explores the culture of inter-war Polish Jewish History in three dimensions. The goal of the class will be to use primary documents to help us explore spaces experienced by Jews in Inter-war Poland: the space of homes, neighborhoods, cities, country-sides, nationstates. These texts will allow us to consider the diversity of Jewish experiences in an interwar East European landscape.
