In 2005 I visited Poland and Lithuania as part of Yad Vashem sponsored graduate field trip to places of Holocaust significance. It was one of the most significant journeys I have taken. One of the things I learned was of the growing number of young(ish) Poles who have come forward over the last ten or so years who have discovered Jewish ancestry and who need to know about that part of their identity that has existed only as a vague memory, if it has existed at all.
The Jagiellonian University in Krakow has one of the largest departments of Jewish studies in Europe with a growing graduate research program that aims at getting students who have discovered Jewish ancestry to uncover, discover and recover the Jewish history of Poland's towns, shtetls and cities. As far as I am aware, the department's program in this area continues.
This provides an introduction to the article I read on the National Catholic Reporter entitled "Educators revive history of Poland's Jews". It is very much a "good news" read, even if some of the comments are somewhat indicative of minds that could do with a little opening.
