The symposium offered a opportunity to hear from leading speakers from Poland and the UK engaged at the highest level with contemporary Jewish life in Poland. Community leaders, cultural practitioners and academics considered the significance of Poland for Jewish people today, as well as issues of religious life, cultural revival, the preservation of Jewish heritage and some challenging questions about Poland’s Jewish past. These proceedings from the symposium offer a unique insight into one of the most provocative, complex subjects in today’s Jewish world.

POLSKA! YEAR (2009-2010) was coordinated by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute in Warsaw, presenting the most interesting achievements of Polish culture to the British public in the fields of visual arts, theatre, music, film and literature.
This paper is the first to compare ethnicity, religion and demographic change among Jews, Russians and Tatars in Russia proper. These three groups were chosen specifically because they represent distinctive religions, as well as greatly differing ethnic backgrounds and cultures. The demographic transition of these three very different ethnic groups was studied for a period of over one hundred years. Ample Russian demographic statistics by ethnic group provided a good basis for such analysis.
