Jews in Historiography and January Uprising Writings 1864-1918. Proposed Characteristics
Languages of publication
The aurhor presents opinions on the involvement and role of the Jews before and during the 1863 January Uprising in historical writings of the years 1864-1918. The juxtaposition of the views of the participants in the disputes, former Uprising activists, and of amateur historians studying the history of the insurrection, confirms that just before the outbreak of the uprising in the Kingdom of Poland an unprecedented reconciliation occurred between the Poles and the Jews. The authors writing about that brotherhood often strike an exalted note, ascribing a symbolic significance to the granting of equal rights to Jews in the Kingdom of Poland in 1862. In the writings in question, derogatory statements about Jews, bordering on anti-Semitism, were a marginal occurrence.
