Skalny Center Talk: Krakow's Metamorphoses

Goergen Hall Sloan Auditorium
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
7:30 PM to 8:30 PM

"Krakow's Metamorphoses at the End of the 20th Century. A Personal Account," presented by Jan Lencznarowicz, associate professor of history in the Department of History of International Migration, Jagiellonian University.

As the historic capital of Poland and a vivid center of culture, Krakow has always held a special place in the minds and hearts of Poles. The time of the fall of Communism and the transition to democracy was no exception. Drawing on his and his contemporaries' experiences, Dr. Jan Lencznarowicz explains how being a part of this intellectual and spiritual milieu influenced their lives and helped to shape their values and attitudes at the time of dramatic changes in the 1980s and 1990s.
