Since the Holocaust, traces of memory are virtually all that
remain of more than 800 years of Jewish life in Poland. Yet some of
that past can still be found if one knows how and where to look. In
this remarkable album, 74 stunning color photographs bear witness
to the great Jewish civilization that once flourished here. The
images record the sites of Jewish life and death, and the ways in
which Jewish culture is being remembered today. Captions and
detailed notes explain and contextualize the photographs. An
invaluable sourcebook on the Jewish heritage of Polish Galicia,
this album also illustrates how photographs can help us understand
the past and discover its relevance for the present.
