“Re-Generation: Jewish Life in Poland” Exhibit OPENING RECEPTION
September 12, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Join us for the opening of “Re-Generation: Jewish Life in Poland” Exhibit including a talk with the photographer, Chuck Fishman.
An exhibition of photographs by Chuck Fishman, on display September 12 through October 11, 2019.
In 1977 a set of photographs by an American student, Chuck Fishman, appeared in a book entitled Polish Jews The Final Chapter. All of them had been taken in 1975 when Fishman visited Poland for the first time. They were a record of his meetings with Polish Jews living in the realities of People’s Poland: the last survivors of the Shoah and the few descendants of a community that once numbered three million and had been nearly wiped out in the Holocaust, and then further diminished by subsequent waves of post-war emigration.
