Photographer's Note

A Winter late afternoon in Kashimirez.

"Old Synagogue
Built on the cusp of the 15th and 16th centuries, the Old Synagogue serves as the oldest surviving example of Jewish religious architecture in Poland and is home to a fine series of exhibits that showcase the history and traditions of Polish Judaism. The English explanations assume no great depth of knowledge on the reader's part and are therefore a perfect primer on the subject. In the midst of all the glass cases stands the bimah enclosed in an elaborate, wrought iron balustrade. Upstairs, a rather shoddy room displays the irrevocable tragedy of this district. Posters and signs advertise the restoration of the old German town of Krakau and the segregation of city trams, followed by deportation instructions and posters with names of excecuted civilians"
