Polish Jewry at The Begin Center

Last night was the opening of "A World Before Catastrophe" at the Menachem Begin Heritage Center. It shows Jewish Life in Krakow, Poland, before World War II.





There's a gorgeous exhibit, but all of the explanations are Hebrew only. It's good if you just want to see pictures and/or if you know enough Hebrew to follow.


There's also a book about it.

Is the book you're referring to Roman Vishniac's A Vanished World?

My parents gave me an autographed copy as a gift ages ago. Very special.

No, it was actually the catalogue of the exhibition in a hardcover edition.

thanks, I never saw the book, so I wasn't sure what it was.
