"The works of Mieczysław Wejman, created in the years 1943-1944, between the ‘Great Action’ in the Warsaw Ghetto (July 1942) and the Ghetto Uprising (April 1943) and the outbreak of the Warsaw Uprising (August 1, 1944), became one of the most important Polish artistic documents recording the time of occupation – and especially of the Holocaust", writes Dr. Piotr Rypson, curator of the temporary exhibition „Dancers 1944. Mieczysław Wejman” in the introdution to the exhibition catalog.

The exhibition will present war graphics and sketches by Mieczysław Wejman (1912-1997), painter, graphic artist, rector of the Academy of Fine Arts in Krakow, co-founder of the International Graphic Biennial in Krakow.
