I visited Krakow on Saturday (25 October) and Sunday (26 October). The purpose for my visit was three-fold: to see Krakow Market where Grandpa George was arrested in September 1944 in a sweeping Gestapo round up, to give my talk, “Chasing Portraits: A Great-Granddaughter’s Quest for her Lost Art Legacy” at JCCKrakow, and to visit the historical Jewish district of Krakow, Kazimierz. Today’s post is mostly a photo montage.
Krakow Square where we filmed segments for Chasing Portraits
The Jewish Historical district of Krakow: Kazimierz.
Wondering about the photo of the “Lucky Jewish Figurines” in the bottom right hand corner? They’re rather, shockingly, in many places. I confess, I even bought a few. Read up a bit on in here: “Hey, Poland, What’s Up With Those Lucky Jewish Statues”
My talk at JCCKrakow
And then the return train trip to Warsaw for the grand opening of Polin: The Museum of the History of Polish Jews (which will be the subject of my next post!)
