IPJS - Book presentation: Joshua Zimmerman: Józef Piłsudski: Founding Father of Modern Poland
Joshua Zimmerman’s authoritative biography examines a national hero in the thick of a changing Europe, and the legacy that still divides supporters and detractors. The Poland that Pilsudski envisioned was modern, democratic, and pluralistic. Domestically, he championed equality for Jews. Internationally, he positioned Poland as a bulwark against Bolshevism. With the author and Professor Antony Polonsky (respondent) and François Guesnet (chair).
