„Art History and the Fight for Memory. Józef Sandel (1894–1962) Founder of Jewish Historical Institute Museum”

The subject of our exhibition, which is part of a series of projects celebrating the seventieth anniversary of the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw, is research in the field of art history, motivated not only by a drive to uncover the truth, but also by a desire to commemorate the work of Polish artists of Jewish origin.

Duration
Oct 06 – Mar 19

The exhibition is not only meant as a tribute or an expression of maudlin sentiment. It aims to showcase the work of Józef Sandel as an important milestone in the history of not only the Jewish Historical Institute as a research institution, but also in studies of the culture of Polish Jews in general. 

Based on the preserved archival materials and published works, we have undertaken a partial reconstruction of Sandel’s groundbreaking (because it was first of its kind) comprehensive vision of the history of Polish Jews.
