Submitted by Susanna J Westen on

UW PSEC has awarded its 2013 Polish Studies Scholarship to Karolina Lamb. Karolina is a graduate student in REECAS and will use the scholarship to travel to Poland this summer in order to conduct research for her MA thesis. Her work focuses on the relationship between Poles and Jews in contemporary Poland. She is planning to compare the Polish reaction to Jan Gross’s 2000 book Neighbors: The Destruction of the Jewish Community in Jedwabne, Poland, with the reaction to Wladyslaw Pasikowski’s 2012 film Aftermath and study responses to the book and film by Polish intellectuals, scholars, and the general public.
