      International Photo Exhibit. Jan 27-30. Palm Beach Synagogue

      The Polish Cultural Institute of New York is proud to commemorate International Holocaust Remembrance Day (Monday, January 27, 2020), which also marks the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz..

      On this occasion, and in partnership with the Palm Beach Synagogue, we are honored to present a special exhibition, Bracha/Blessing. Back to Polish Shtetls by the renowned Polish art photographer, Agnieszka Traczewska. A special closing event on Thursday, January 30th will feature Ambassador Jacek Chodorowicz, the plenipotentiary of the Minister of Foreign Affairs in dialogue with the Jewish diaspora, Rabbi Moshe Scheiner of the Palm Beach Synagogue, PCINY Director Adrian Kubicki, and the artist Agnieszka Traczewska .

      The exhibit features stories of Hasidim returning to Jewish heritage sites in Poland. Since 2006, Agnieszka Traczewska has been given rare access to the world of Hasidic Judaism, a community often inaccessible to outsiders. This unique and historic access has produced an intimate portrait of people experiencing the mystery of faith. Traczewska's collection, which appears also as a photo album entitled Returns. Hasidic returns to not-to-be forgotten places, is a testament to her artistic passion and long-standing involvement with the Hasidic community in Poland. Traczewska's photography portrays survival and homecoming in the devastating aftermath of World War II, which has special significance and relevance at this moment.

      Equipped with a camera and modest attire, Traczewska has managed to capture the hermetic, Hasidic rituals and customs and their day-to-day life, in a most intimate manner. As a contemporary Polish artist born after the war, Traczewska,seeks to rediscover a 'lost world' - that is, the traces of those Polish Jews who for centuries lived side by side with their Gentile neighbors and who were vanished from the Polish world she was born into.

      This event is free and open to the public and appropriate for people of all ages.

      Artists / Speakers: Agnieszka Traczewska
