10 December 2018: Anna Bikont on Irena Sendler

Monday 10 December 2018, 7pm – 8.30pm

The Institute for Polish-Jewish Studies is delighted to host Anna Bikont, journalist and writer, who will talk about Irena Sendler

Anna Bikont on Irena Sendler

Anna Bikont was a Solidarity activist
and a co-founder of Gazeta Wyborcza –
the first newspaper published legally
in Poland outside communist control.
She is the author of The Crime and the
Silence: Confronting the Massacre of
Jews in Wartime Jedwabne which won
the European Book Prize in 2011, and
the recipient of many journalistic and
literary awards.
In her presentation, Anna will discuss
Irena Sendler, and her new book – a
biography of this remarkable woman.
Irena Sendler saved hundreds of Jewish
children from certain death in German-occupied Poland.

The book is impeccably researched, very detailed and thorough. It shatters many
myths and is perhaps the best biography of Sendler.
