My project is a study of post-Holocaust Polish-Jewish literature a form of witnessing, and in particular, as a form of reconstructing and preserving lost cultural landscapes. In putting disregarded works of Polish and Yiddish literature back into conversation with one another, my project, a study of the problem of remembering after the Holocaust, itself is an act of recovery of Polish-Jewish culture. I am particularly interested in the haunting presence of Polish-Jewish culture in contemporary Polish society and its impact on the memory of the Holocaust in Poland.
