Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett – a distinguished New York University ethnographer, author, essayist and keeper of Poland’s Jewish heritage – talks about the newly-opened POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews, in Warsaw. She takes us behind the scenes of its core exhibit, developed by a collaboration of more than 120 international scholars under her direction, and discusses her indefatigable efforts to reanimate a vanished Jewish world she has spent a lifetime exploring.
