Talk by Professor Marek Jan Chodakiewicz

Professor Marek Jan Chodakiewicz will give a talk on "Polish Freedom and Democratic Traditions From the Anglo-Saxon Perspective". We are fortunate in having been able to secure the services of the Professor, who will be visiting the UK from The USA. He is a Polish-American historian, specializing in East Central European history of the 19th and 20th century. He is the current holder of the Kosciuszko Chair of Polish Studies at Institute of World Politics in Washington DC and has authored numerous works in both English and Polish. While at the University of Virginia, he edited the Kosciuszko Chair's bulletin: Nihil Novi. His historical works include: After the Holocaust: Polish-Jewish Relations in the Wake of World War II, and Between Nazis and Soviets: Occupation Politics in Poland. Chodakiewicz lives in the Greater Washington DC area. This promises to be a fascinating talk by a man eminent in his field and no doubt will generate a lively debate during the discussion session at the end of the lecture. There will also be a chance to talk less formally during the drinks reception before the event.

There is no charge for entry but a voluntary donation of say, £5 would be appreciated from those attending towards the cost of the wine.
