PEACE AND RECONCILIATION IN UKRAINE AND POLAND
PAST AND PRESENT OF THE REFUGEE CRISIS

From the event's website: In recent weeks Poland has welcomed a greater number of refugees from Ukraine than any other country, often with striking warmth and generosity, although the relationship between the two nations has been complex over time.

Swarthmore College faculty members Allen Kuharski* and Barbara Milewski will speak about the cultural, historical, and diplomatic context for the extraordinary outpouring of grassroots support for Ukrainian refugees in Poland over the last month and about the other complexities of these current events.

Bob Weinberg, Isaac H. Clothier Professor of History and International Relations, will host the event; there will be a chance to ask questions after the  presentations, in person or via the Zoom “chat.”
