The rebirth of Jewish life and culture began in Poland approximately 30 years ago, and was possible thanks to the involvement of many people and institutions, within Poland and from abroad.

Photographs from Jewish Poland

Mobile app from the Galicia Jewish Museum
Available free for iOS and Android from September 2020

The Galicia Jewish Museum’s mobile application aims to present the wide and complete spectrum of photographic projects dedicated to Polish Jewry. With one image at a time, we would like to broaden the knowledge of the work of great photographers who directed their lenses at Jewish Poland, but first of all — knowledge of Jewish history in Poland.

Regularly published photographs will be accompanied by captions, placing them in their historical and social context. With time, this carefully curated collection will become a visually powerful statement of Polish-Jewish history, allowing for an insightful look into Jewish past and present in Poland beyond the stereotypes and misconceptions.

The application is accompanied by a program of online lectures and webinars, which has started in August and will run through December.

The application is being created in partnership with the the Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life.

The application and a program of accompanying events is a public project co-financed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland through the competition Public Diplomacy 2020 – A New Dimension.

The project reflects only the views of its creators and holds no bearing on the official position of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
