August Zaleski Memorial Lecture in Modern Polish History


This lecture series was established in 1983 through a generous gift from the estate of August Zaleski's widow, Ewelina Zaleska, to "organize lectures on modern Polish history from the year 1795 to the present time." The lectures remain independent of any other courses or professorships and are known as "The August Zaleski Lectures in Modern Polish History."


Timothy Snyder, Bird White Housum Professor of History, Yale University was the 2016 Zaleski speaker and discussed his book "Black Earth: The Holocaust as History and Warning." View the video of his presentation.
