Galicia Jewish Museum


The Galicia Jewish Museum (Polish: 呕ydowskie Muzeum Galicja) is located in the historic Jewish district of Kazimierz in Krak贸w, Poland. It is a photo exhibition documenting the remnants of Jewish culture and life in Polish Galicia, which used to be very vibrant in this area.

The Museum was established in April 2004 by the British photojournalist Chris Schwarz (whose father originated from Lw贸w), in cooperation with Professor Jonathan Webber of UNESCO, in an effort to celebrate the Jewish culture of the Polish Galicia and commemorate the victims of the Holocaust in Poland.
