Galicia Jewish Museum - Review

Inside the kazimierz Jewish district of Krakow, this photographic exhibition explorers the historic Jewish culture that used to exist before the Holocaust. It was opened in April 2004. There are two major exhibits here.

The smaller and less famous exhibit focuses on the citizens of Poland who have been recognized by the Yad Vashem as Righteous Among the Nations. These are the people acclaimed for saving the lives of Jewish citizens from extermination during the Holocaust. Poland boasts 6706 such men and women, which is the highest of any nation.

The second exhibit took 12 years to complete. It is called Traces of Memory, and it documents by photographs the 800 year history of Jewish influence in Western Galicia. It focuses on ruins, the culture of a time gone by, the Holocaust, and Jewish activism today. The Auschwitz concentration camp also features prominently.

Occasionally the museum also hosts temporary exhibitions so check the museum calendar. for those interested the museum also offers workshops and lectures on Jewish religion and culture. Sometimes there are concerts and other cultural events. There is a small kids corner. Don't forget to check out the cafe in the book shop.

Galicia Jewish Museum, Krakow Reviews

  • I saw the Blood exhibition, which was honestly incredibly interesting for me. It was very educational too, everything was explained simply and well. I also saw the exhibition of photos of (often desolated) Jewish buildings. I spent there a large chunk of time, as I was really sunken into the exhibition. I reccomend this place for people who actually want to read the captions.

  • A wonderful museum. Fully explaining the Jewish faith from early beginnings right up to date. Not to be missed.

  • Wonderful museum. Based on Photographs taken in recent years, the museum tells the story of Jews in Polish Galicia but this is a good example for Jewish life in Poland as a whole. Don't miss this museum!

  • I'm giving this five stars because it deserves the support of everyone. The exhibition 'Rediscovering the Traces of Memory' was quite moving and follows not only the story of one woman's diary from her years in the Lodz ghetto, but also includes photography from decades of Jewish life in the region. The cafe is quite nice for a snack or beverage and the bookstore is probably the best one on Jewish topics I've seen in Poland. The museum also does a number of additional projects that are worth looking into.

  • Very interesting exhibition about holocaust in Poland. Many details and good organization. Recommended for everybody!
