One of the most misunderstood of Jewish communities in the post-WWII diaspora is the Polish community. This flash tickler should portray that mood and feeling. The Galicia Jewish Museum exists to commemorate the victims of the Holocaust and to celebrate the Jewish culture of Polish Galicia, presenting Jewish history from a new perspective. An innovative and unique institution located in Krakow, Poland, the objectives of the Museum are to challenge the stereotypes and misconceptions typically associated with the Jewish past in Poland and to educate both Poles and Jews about their own histories. At the centre of the Museum is the permanent exhibition, Traces of Memory, a photographic exhibition offering a contemporary look at the Jewish past in Poland.
