The Memory of Meanings. The Images of Jewish-Catholic Relations in Interwar Lublin in Oral Histories
Magdalena Dziaczkowska, /member of the Polish Council of Christians and Jews/
This work explores narratives of Jewish-Catholic relations in interwar Lublin, as recalled by its Jewish and Catholic inhabitants by the end of their lives. Thus, it concerns both memory and intergroup relations and seeks to understand the attitudes towards the religious Other. The main body of sources for this qualitative study is a collection of oral histories from the Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre Centre in Lublin, which were analyzed thematically focusing on the memory of everyday interactions between Jews and Catholics.
