Acknowledgements for Poland: Uprising, Holocaust and Remembrance

This on-line exhibition is a collection of pictures, poetry and narrative to commemorate the journey of Fay Krokower, Ben Krokower and Marilyn Turkovich to Poland 2010.  Primary cities visited during the trip were: Warsaw, Łódź, Wrocław, Kraków and Lublin.

The picture above features Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory, Krakow.  The administrative building of the factory is now a Holocaust museum.  The factory had been seized from a Jewish owner, Nathan Wurzel and renamed Deutsche Emaillewaren-Fabrik.  It was in Schindler’s office that the idea of rescuing Jews began, and the collective of names called Schindler’s list.

Historical photographs used in this book were taken from displays at the Oskar Schindler Museum in Krakow.
