Żydowskie Muzeum Galicja Kraków
Galicia Jewish Museum in Kraków
The Galicia Jewish Museum was established in an old, pre-war mill. The permanent exhibition, which welcomes both Cracovians and tourists, consists of two thematic blocks: Following the Footsteps of Memory, and Unfinished Memory. The first thematic block is the result of a twelve-year collaboration between Chris Schwarz and Jonathan Weber (former UNESCO President for Jewish Studies and Interreligious Dialogue) and provides a new perspective on issues of the Jewish past. The exhibition features photographs of places, people, symbols, its stories and tales. It is divided into five sections, which include: Witnessing the Ruins; Jewish Culture as It Once Was; Holocaust; The Sites of Extermination; How the Past is Remembered; People Creating Memory. Memory Unfinished is an exhibition that is part of the Galicia Jewish Museum's plan to take a bold look at Jewish heritage and the whole of historic Galicia, including its eastern part that today belongs to Ukraine.
