Merle Kastner <merlek@...>
 

October book launch - Thursday, October 16, 7:00 - 9:00pm at:
Librarie Drawn & Quarterly
211 Bernard Ouest, Montreal, Quebec H2T 2K5

In Poland today, "Lucky Jews" outnumber Polish Jews. Figurines and
images,of Jews holding money have proliferated in Poland with the country's
transition,to capitalism. These good luck charms hang in homes and sit by
cash registers in shops and restaurants across the country. Are these images
positive or negative? Do they divide Poles and Jews, or bind them
together? Are they souvenirs, talismans, toys? Holocaust ghosts or patron
saints of Polish capitalism? By exploring what Jewish figurines mean to
those who make and buy them, "Lucky Jews" offers a provocative perspective on
the place of Jews in Polish consciousness today.

Join in a discussion about a unique aspect of Poland's current fascination
with Jewish culture.

Shtetl Montreal [http://shtetlmontreal.com/] host Tamara Kramer will talk
with anthropologist and curator Erica Lehrer her book "Lucky Jews," which
grew out of her 2013 exhibit in Krakow of Polish-made Jewish figurines.

Books will be available for purchase, and the film "A Jew for Luck"
(24 min., English & Polish with subtitles) by Polish director Paulina
Fiejdasz will also be shown.

Co-sponsored by CEREV [http://cerev.concordia.ca/]
