Bridge To Poland is an organization founded by Leora Tec to delve into nuanced questions of memory, commemoration, suffering, forgiveness and identity as they relate to the history of Jews in Poland. Bridge To Poland seeks to highlight, through writing, film, workshops, presentations, research projects and unique travel experiences, in grateful partnership with Brama Grodzka-Teatr NN in Lublin, Poland, how non-Jewish Poles are commemorating Jewish life in Poland today. Thanks to a fellowship from Wellesley College, Leora spent a good chunk of 2018-2019 in Poland interviewing non-Jewish rescuers of memory with the aim of building a video archive of conversations with these amazing people. This is a joint project with Brama Grodzka-Teatr-NN. A major way that Bridge To Poland’s mission is realized is through trips to Poland, which are open to all who are curious. Many travelers on Bridge To Poland trips, bracing themselves for a pilgrimage among the ashes, are surprised to discover healing and hope. If you are looking for a trip that offers intellectual depth, the intimacy of a small group, the possibility of transformation and does not shy away from complex questions I'd love to have a conversation with you. Bridge To Poland trips are for people with open hearts and open minds from all faith traditions or no faith tradition, all genders and sexual orientations and all races.
