Exhibition “(post)Jewish… Shtetl Opatow Through the Eyes of Mayer Kirshenblatt”

Article publié le 25 March 2024

From 17 May to 16 December 2024 at the Polin Museum

This exhibition gives visitors an insight into Jewish life in Opatow through the works of the painter Mayer Kirshenblatt. All those characters who populate the tales of so many Yiddish authors in the 1001 shtetls of Eastern Europe. Although most of these villages have disappeared, literary and artistic memories remain, a wonderful way of prolonging Jewish life. Artistic interventions in the town of Opatow today will also be presented.
