Tijdens een kort verblijf in Krakau bezocht ik het Galicia Jewish Museum. Naast tijdelijke tentoonstellingen en een goede boekenwinkel, toont het de permanente tentoonstelling van foto’s van Chris Schwarz.

The exhibition features photographs by the late Chris Schwarz and texts by Prof. Jonathan Webber (UNESCO Committee Chair for Jewish and Interdenominational Studies at the University of Birmingham, and Professor at the Institute for European Studies at Jagiellonian University in Kraków). Over a period of twelve years, they worked together to gather material that offers a completely new way of looking at the Jewish past that was destroyed in Poland. The exhibition pieces together a picture of the relics of Jewish life and culture in Polish Galicia that can still be seen today, interpreting these traces in a manner which is informative, accessible, and thought-provoking.
