Traces of Memory:
A Contemporary Look at the Jewish Past in Poland
Traces of Memory, made possible by the Galicja Museum in partnership with the Polish Mission, is a photographic exhibition created by the late Chris Schwarz and Professor Jonathan Webber, offers a completely new way of looking at the Jewish past that was destroyed in Poland. Take a journey through Polish Galicia and experience the relics of Jewish life and culture that can still be seen today.
The exhibit will be on view in our auditorium until November 26, 2014 and is free with museum admission. Members can visit the exhibit free of charge.
Traces of Memory is also made possible with Honoary Patronage of the General Consulate of the Republic of Poland in Chicago and is sponsored by the Children of Holocaust Survivors Association in Michigan (CHAIM), Cohn-Haddow Center for Judaic Studies at Wayne State University, Eastern Michigan University Jewish Studies, and the Voice/Vision Holocaust Survivor Oral History Archive.
