RSVP: “Re-Generation. Jewish Life in Poland.” Exhibition Discussion

November 18 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

The Center for Jewish Civilization is pleased to invite you to a discussion of the exhibit “Re-Generation. Jewish Life in Poland.” The event will take pace in the Arrupe Multipurpose Room on Georgetown University’s Main Campus. RSVP on the CJC eventbrite today!

About the Event:

Press photographer Chuck Fishman achieved great renown for his work, having won the World Press Photo Foundation medal four times, and having been featured on the covers of magazines such as Life, Newsweek, Time, and Fortune. The Jewish Historical Institute’s exhibit “Re-Generation. Jewish Life in Poland,” explores the history of Jewish communities in post-war Poland throughout a 43-year period.

The images selected for the “Re-Generation. Jewish life In Poland” exhibition cover different periods and are divided into two parts. The earlier ones taken in the 1970s and 1980s depict the few remaining members of the “struggling” remnant Jewish communities of Kraków, Wrocław, Warsaw, Lublin, Łódź, Przemyśl. In contrast, the photographs taken since 2000 (the most recent ones at the 75th commemoration of the Ghetto Uprising in 2018) present the renewed Jewish congregations and organizations where jubilant young people demonstrate enthusiasm and astuteness as they engage in the renewal of Jewish religious and cultural life in the country. This discussion will explore Fishman’s multi-faceted documentation of Jewish life.

Speakers TBA.

RSVP is encouraged.
