The Faces of the Ghetto
June 22, 2014 – August 20, 2014
Within months of the Nazi invasion of Poland in 1939, the Germans established an overcrowded and unsanitary Ghetto and imprisoned Jews there. The Lodz Ghetto’s Jewish Council hired Mendel Grossman and Henryk Ross, Jewish photographers to take clandestine photos of the Jews inside the ghetto. They managed to hide the photos before being deported. This exhibition presents their work.
