Warsaw Ghetto Museum`s exhibition "The City of the Living / The City of the Dead"


The Samuel Bak Museum (Naugarduko St. 10) hosts the Warsaw Ghetto Museum`s exhibition "City of the Living / City of the Dead". The exhibition is initiated by the Polish Institute in Vilnius.

"City of the Living / City of the Dead" is a photography project by Robert Wilczyński. Combining archival images of people and places in the Warsaw Ghetto (from the Warsaw Ghetto Museum collection) with photographs of Warsaw today, the artist brings back and visualizes a dramatic period in the city`s history.
Due to the annihilation of almost all of Warsaw`s Jewish community during World War II and the destruction of its material and cultural heritage, the images of the ghetto and those confined there appear in the photographs as ephemeral traces. They permeate the fabric of the contemporary city like memories rooted in a bygone age, demanding that their story be remembered.
The photographs are accompanied by selected quotations from primary sources, including journals and diaries documenting daily life, suffering and death in the Warsaw ghetto in 1940-1942.
Exhibition was displayed in New York, EU Parliament and the other locations in the world.
The exhibition "City of the Living / City of the Dead" is the first event in a series of events commemorating the 80th anniversary of the anti-Nazi resistance and liquidation of the Vilnius Ghetto.
