"RE-GENERATION. JEWISH LIFE IN POLAND." CHUCK FISHMAN
Open 10:00 - 18:00.
ul. Dajwór 18
This photo exhibition contains work that first appeared in a book titled 'Polish Jews: The Final Chapter'. The photos in the book were all taken during 1975 when Chuck Fishman visited Poland for the first time. Once a community of around 3 million people, it had dwindled from the aftermath of the Holocaust and post-war emigration. The photos depicted the reality of life for the remaining Jews in the last decade of the People's Poland. 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 still cultivated their Jewishness. The photos provide the story of over four decades of Jewish life in contemporary Poland.
