City Spaces and Forms of Memory – Polish-Jewish Heritage

The main objective of the text is to make a diagnosis concerning various kinds of Polish memory of the Jewish past. The article analyses also non-literary sources. Undoubtedly, Jewish history in the Eastern European diaspora constitutes a part of mutual, Polish-Jewish history. However, for years it has been either excluded from different discourses of the past or treated as an entirely separate element. Since the late 1980s one may notice a distinct increase in the interest in the presence of Jewish heritage in Polish culture. In the article I would like to analyse various forms of that interest, which may be particularly observed within the confines of the Polish cities.
