Professor Anna Cichopek-Gajraj will talk about her recent book, Beyond Violence: Jewish Survivors in Poland and Slovakia in 1944-1948.
It is a comparative study of the non-Jewish/Jewish relations in Poland and Slovakia after World War II. In her book, she tells a story of Holocaust survivors returning to “no-home” and their encounters with post-war social realities. By focusing on the daily efforts of Polish and Slovak Jews to rebuild their lives, she investigates the limits of belonging to national/ethnic communities in Eastern Europe after the Holocaust.

The book received the 2015 Barbara Heldt Prize honorable mention for the best book by a woman in Slavic/Eastern European/Eurasian Studies by Association for Women in Slavic Studies (AWSS).
