Dear members of the Faculty of Arts community,
As you may have heard, earlier this week our colleague Jan Grabowski was unjustly convicted for his historical research by a Polish court. For many years our colleague has been the target of harassment for his scholarship about the Holocaust in Poland. I cannot imagine how trying this must have been for him. We stand by him and his right to pursue his research free from these unwarranted attacks, and will continue to support him in any way we can. Please see the University of Ottawa’s statement.
