Chuck Fishman: "Regeneration. Jewish Life in Poland"
Oct 15 - Aug 15 2019
ul. Dajwór 18
This photo exhibition contains work that first appeared in the book, ‘Polish Jews: The Final Chapter.’ The photos were all taken in the aftermath of the Holocaust and post-war Jewish emigration when Chuck Fishman visited Poland for the first time in 1975. These photos depict the reality of life for the remaining Jews in the last decade of the Polish People’s Republic. Fishman continued to travel back to Poland and document the changes that the Jewish community experienced in the 1980s up until the 2010s. He took photographs in Kraków, Wrocław and Warsaw, but also in Lublin, Łódź and Przemyśl, where only a handful of individuals still practised Judaism. The photos provide the story of over four decades of Jewish life in contemporary Poland.
