Collected in entire Poland since 1944, salvaged from destruction, the works are very important documents and testament to the history of Polish Jews. They are the core of the collection of paintings, graphics and sculptures of the collection of the JHI’s Museum. Thanks to the fact that the collection is constantly expanding, the Institute has gathered works by the most important artists of Jewish descend; often they are the only trace, the only souvenir that they left. On the exhibition we will show works by nearly fifty artists which depict richness of Jewish-Polish artistic life of pre-war Warsaw and many other cities of the Second Republic of Poland. It will also include drawings and watercolour paintings made in the Warsaw and Łódź ghettos during German occupation.
