Milwaukee's Jewish Museum presents
Virtual Tour of
GALICIA JEWISH MUSEUM
in Kraków, Poland
(June 17th at 11:50 am CDT)
From the host's website: Begin with highlights of the permanent exhibition, Traces of Memory, which offers a contemporary and thought-provoking look at Jewish Poland, reflecting many issues and processes rooted in the past, but influencing the future. You’ll see evidence of the diversity and richness of the Jewish world that existed in southern Poland – places connected with local Jewish history depicted not only as remnants of the past but also visible and important elements of the landscape of modern-day Poland.
Then tour the new temporary exhibition, Szancer, Imagine That!, which invites visitors into the imaginary world of famous Polish-Jewish illustrator, Jan Marcin Szancer. An institution in the realm of Polish children’s book illustration, Szancer’s colorful works for various fairytales are informed by the experience of both world wars and anti-Jewish repressions. Exhibit tours will be followed by a live Q&A with Galicia staff.
