The year 2019 marked the 100th anniversary of the birth of John Paul II. Pope John Paul II played a crucial role in reshaping Jewish-Catholic relations, especially in Poland.

In this talk, Stanisław Krajewski, Ph.D., professor of philosophy at the University of Warsaw, will discuss all three meetings of the pope with representatives of Polish Jews. Krajewski was a Jewish participant in all of them. He will share the behind the scenes account with us and discuss subsequent Polish attitudes to the pope’s views about Jews.


This event is open to alumni, faculty/staff, parents, students, and the public.
