In our histoPOD podcast we speak to international experts to learn how the Holocaust is remembered in different countries.
Nazi Germany’s invasion of Poland on 1 September 1939 marked the beginning of the Second World War. With the system of concentration and extermination camps, which Nazi Germany built mostly in occupied Poland, the regime’s aim of totally exterminating the Jewish population was nearly achieved. In this edition we speak to Dariusz Stola, the former director of the POLIN museum. We learn what this means for the Polish culture of Holocaust remembrance, how this culture has developed over time and what it looks like today.
