Poland’s Jewish Past in a Photographic Exhibition

A photography exhibition documenting the Jewish influence in Poland gets underway in London at the end of the month.  As part of Polska! Year 2009, the event will draw upon the work of British photographer Chris Schwarz to highlight Poland’s Jewish past as well as the influence Jewish culture has on the country today.

The exhibition at the London Jewish Cultural Centre in Golders Green, which starts on 30 July and will run until the end of September, follows 12 years of collaborative working between Chris Schwarz and Professor Jonathan Webber, the UNESCO Chair of Jewish and Interfaith Studies at the University of Birmingham.
