Photos in a Jar: The unusual story of survival and post-war returns of Ryszard Ores.

Article publié le 5 September 2021

Guided theme tour with Małgorzata Fus. Starting point: in front of the building of Hala Targowa (14 Grzegórzecka St.)

This story has everything: Jewish ancestors – who were Polish patriots fighting with Piłsudski for Polish independence, tickets for a ferry to America, kosher sausages, love, war, and the Shoah. Above all, this story also includes photographs from the Krakow Ghetto, hidden in a jar and buried on the way to the Płaszów Concentration Camp. We would like to invite you on a guided tour following the footsteps of Ryszard Ores, a Krakovian, Jew, and Holocaust Survivor, who never forgot his hometown, even after settling in the US in the post-war years.

During the tour, we will go to the places associated with Ryszard’s pre-war life and the area of the former ghetto, where Ryszard worked as a paramedic and from which, his family was deported to Bełżec. We will also go to the places, to which he returned to after the war.

This is an accompanying event to the exhibition “Sweet Home Sweet: A Story of Survival, Memory, and Returns.”

In Polish. Free admission. Reservations required:
