Uncle of photojournalist, Chris Schwarz
The exhibition features photographs by the late British photojournalist Chris Schwarz and research and texts by Prof. Jonathan Weber (UNESCO Chair of Jewish and Interfaith Studies, University of Birmingham, UK). 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, accesible, and thought-provoking.
