Platform for Jewish-Polish Dialogue  
 

The DIALOG is devoted to the improvement of relations between the Jewish and Polish peoples. We welcome everyone to express their thoughts, feelings and concerns as to how this can be accomplished.

Jews and Poles are two peoples among other on the globe. They have lived together for hundreds of years. We know that down through history Jewish lives have suffered persecution and genocidal extermination in many lands, including Polish soil during and before the Holocaust in bygone years. We know, too, that Polish lives have been torn asunder by invasions, repression and killings by foreign occupiers. In the course of Jewish and Polish struggles for survival and independence, other peoples have extended a helping hand.

This is the place where we, in good will, would like to search for common foundations that would enable us to establish and nourish mutual respect and to reach an understanding of each other's experience and views. Among other things, we invite your suggestions on how to bring about a happier future.

Let's meet in an atmosphere of truth and frankness, no matter how delicate the issues be. Let's learn from each other and become friends.

Thank you for visiting.
