Moral, Political, and Historical Considerations
in the Post-World War II
Exhibit at the Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw
The new POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews presents over a thousand years of history. But one of the most difficult exhibitions was the one dealing with the period following World War II. While subject to the general assumptions and guidelines that applied throughout the whole museum, had to face specific problems that ranged from historical to political to moral. Not only does the exhibit encompass the history of events in living memory, it also seeks to show that the post-1945 chapter exists, that is, the history of Polish Jews did not end in the Shoah. The authors of the exhibition, among them Professor Krajewski, tried to maintain consistently a non-judgmental approach even though in some events of the last decades they took an active part.
Stanislaw Krajewski, professor at the Institute of Philosophy of the University of Warsaw, Poland, has been involved in research in logic and the philosophy of mathematics as well as in the philosophy of religion and interfaith dialogue. Involved in revival of Jewish life, after the fall of Communism in 1989 he was among the founders of the Polish-Israeli Friendship Society and of the Polish Council of Christians and Jews, of which he has been the Jewish co-chairman since its inception. Former member of the board of the Union of Jewish Religious Communities in Poland, International Council of the Auschwitz Camp Museum and Memorial, he worked on the post-war section of POLIN, the new Museum of the History of Polish Jews in Warsaw.
