The artistic achievement of Polish Jews includes objects related to their religious rites, and paintings, sculptures and graphics of outstanding secular artists from all over Europe. A significant part of the secular art at the JHI constitutes a legacy of Greek Jews, murdered in the extermination facilities in Auschwitz and Majdanek. Found after the Second World War in the basement of some castles in Lower Silesia (where they had been collected by the Germans), the handicraft works were transferred to the Institute by the Ministry of Culture. In the exhibit, you will find both items used at home and in the synagogue, daily and on special occasions, objects representative of the art and ornamentation of Ashkenazic and Sephardic Jews. Most of the pieces come from the 18th and 19th centuries.
