With the passing of the centuries, the Lithuanian Jewish community developed their Litvak identity which was inseparable from Lithuania. Lithuania has become a whole world to Jewish artists: mother, home, manuscript of wisdom, talisman, consolation, cracked earth, and place of tragic loss… They embraced Lithuania with love, longing and poetic melancholy.

The exhibition presents the certain aspects of the creative work of Litvak artists, which reveal the typifying and transformation of the image of Lithuania, starting with romantic historical Vilnius, native shtetls and the traditional Lithuanian landscape, and ending with the poor workers' quarters and the ruins of the towns. The exhibition traces the search for the Litvak identity by Litvaks in a multicultural world, which manifests in a variety of ways. Poetry lovers will enjoy poems translated from the Yiddish language, and fans of history, music, cinema and theater will discover a number of interesting facts. The exhibition consists of 15 panels in English.
The exhibition is complemented by a richly illustrated 184-page catalog, which won the prize for the most beautiful scientific book in Lithuania in 2018.

The exhibition consists of 15 panels in English.
Size of each panel is 170x100 cm.
The panels can be placed on the floor or on the wall.
