SPEAKING OUT AGAINST HATE
Tuesday, January 19, 2021, 1:00 p.m. ET

JTS Library Director Dr. David Kraemer will speak to Grzegorz Kwiatkowski, a critically acclaimed Polish poet and rock musician who speaks out against Holocaust denial, genocide, and the rise of right-wing nationalism in Poland.

Kwiatkowski’s poems explore not only the conflicted pasts of Central and South-Eastern Europe, but also the paradoxes of contemporary genocides, such as that in Rwanda.

As the poet explains, „I’m intrigued by the combination of ethics and aesthetics in one person, one life, one story.” His minimalist poems have been perceived as quasi-testimonies, „full of passion, terror and disgust,” provocative and lyrical utterances delivered on behalf of the murdered and the dead.

In the words of The Times of Israel, „Polish post-punk band [Trupa Trupa] rages against populism, hatred, and Holocaust denial.” Further, „Trupa Trupa vocalist and songwriter, Grzegorz Kwiatkowski — shaped by his ancestors’ imprisonment at Stutthof concentration camp—speaks truth to power through punk poetry.” Dalej Spotkanie w Jewish Theological Seminary
