Platform for Jewish-Polish Dialogue  
 

Arts and culture constitute a universal plane where the dialogue can be carried on in a natural way... a dialogue of many different spheres and cultural trends, a dialogue of values and the human spirit.

In this way, the Jewish community has lived in Poland for centuries, so many of its cultural values have been formed there. As time passed, Jewish and Polish cultures began to penetrate and influence each other. Polish science, art and culture profited from contributions of many Jewish-Polish intellectuals. Among very well known persons, with at least partially Jewish roots who have made great contributions to Polish culture, are Adam Mickiewicz, Julian Tuwim and Adam Michnik. The same applies to the Jewish heritage, in which Polish elements are among its permanent components.
