(post)JEWISH… Shtetl Opatów Through the Eyes of Mayer Kirshenblatt

May 17 - Dec 16 2024       ul. Anielewicza 6
This exhibition looks at what it was like growing up in an old Jewish town (shetl), using Mayer Kirshenblatt's paintings, which depict his hometown of Opatów in his youth. In the wake of the Holocaust, these towns as they were had been largely destroyed, so this exhibiton gives a rare window into a lost culture. See what daily life in a shtetl was like compared to Opatów today as well as how the modern town copes with its memory and difficult history.
