March’68 @ POLIN Museum

Estranged. March ’68 and Its Aftermath

The POLIN Museum program titled Estranged. March ’68 and Its Aftermath addresses the events which took place 22 years after the Holocaust.

The European Association of the Museum of The History of Polish Jews POLIN (AEMJP) is the main sponsor of the March 68 project.

The exhibition and its accompanying program are set against the political context in Poland at the time, yet their core is not the struggle for power, or students’ strikes, but the fate of Polish Jews who were expelled from Poland in the aftermath of March events. Expelled, for there is no difference really between forced emigration and expulsion.

The title reflects the March ’68 experiences of Polish Jews and Poles of Jewish origin, especially those forced to emigrate and to renounce their right for a homeland. Thus, a feeling of estrangement transpires as the key notion – both a propaganda measure and a personal experience.
