“Olkieniki – a Jewish community on the Eve of the Holocaust"

This exhibition is devoted to the “shtetl” – the Jewish small town of Eastern Europe. The presentation of daily life in the shtetl is organized according to themes, represented by means of maps, models, and photographs. Rather than a chronological narrative; the presentation depicts the shtetl’s social history, material culture, tradition, and ways of life. The exhibition commemorates the community on the eve of its annihilation, and concludes with the elegy by the poet Itzhak Katzenelson, “The Song of the Murdered Jewish People.”
