1,000 Years of Jewish Life in Poland: A Timeline

1,000 Years of Jewish Life in Poland: A TimelineIn appreciation of the millennium of Jewish history and accomplishments in Poland, we assembled and updated an authoritative timeline of the significant events of Jewish life in Poland, so often limited in modern-day sensibilities as exclusively the site of the Holocaust. Beginning with the arrival of Abraham ben Yaakov in the year 965, the illustrated timeline follows the rich and complex history of Polish Jewry through the centuries up to the present day. French and Hebrew language translations are made possible with the support of a “Common History, New Chapters” grant from the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
