Jews have been living in Poland for over 1000 years. Between the 16th and 18th century, the Jewish community flourished and enjoyed a certain amount of autonomy in Poland. Following the Polish partition of 1795, many Jews were subject to anti-Semitism, pogroms, and poverty. Despite this persecution, Poland remained an important center of both Jewish religious learning, and was the birthplace of many influential Jews in politics, law, science, literature, and economics. This resource pack was made in collaboration with Centropa.
