Przemyśl, in south-eastern Poland, was a cultural crossroads between the two world wars of the 20th century. Poland was a multicultural country at the time, and the population of Przemyśl included about 35% non-Polish speakers. Investigating cultural practices and interactions, as well as activities in the social and public spheres, the lecture will use Przemyśl to provide a window into the social life of interwar Poland.
Free and open to the public.
