For over 500 years Poland was the centre of Jewish life in the world. Beginning with the renaissance of the intellectual religious life in the 16th century in Krakow and continuing until just before World War II, Poland has produced a major force of influencers on the Jewish world: men, women, religious, secular, and everything in between. In this lecture series, we will explore the personalities and philosophies of some of the great Polish Jewish leaders who have led movements, institutions, and even countries.

Ludwik Zamenhof was born in the town of Białystok. He was a medical doctor but he is best known for his love of languages, which led him to create Esperanto, the most successful constructed language in the world.

In Polish. Free admission.
