YU Museum exhibit 2/25 - 6/24: The Vanished World of Polish Jews

And I Still See Their Faces: The Vanished World of Polish Jews

Feb. 25 - June 24, 2007

This photographic exhibition documents the faces of Polish Jews and their everyday activities before the Holocaust. The photographs and albums, whose owners perished, were scattered throughout Poland during the war and saved from obscurity by the Shalom Foundation, which digitally enhanced and enlarged the photographs and devoted over two years to tracing the identities of the subjects and piecing together their stories. The photographs are accompanied by personal stories, which vividly evoke the vanished world of over three million Polish Jews for museum visitors.

Co-sponsored by the Museum of the History of the Polish Jews, North American Council, and Boston University Hillel House.
