Exhibition by Jewish Museum Shows Pre-WWII Life in Warsaw, Poland

FSWC Reports:

From the Associated Press:

Old films, music recordings and everyday objects are among items that recreate the atmosphere of Jewish life in Warsaw until World War II in a new exhibition at Warsaw's Jewish history museum.

The "Warszawa, Warsze" — "Warsaw" in Polish and Yiddish — exhibition opens Friday at the new Museum of the History of Polish Jews, and will run through June 30. In sections dedicated to writers, artists, family sagas and daily life it shows how the Jews and the city interacted, influencing and enriching each other. The loss of Jewish Warsaw is best shown in pictures comparing some sites as they are now — modern hotels and streets — with the low, old-style architecture of their Jewish times.
