For three years, Dr. Roma Sendyka, Dr. Erica Lehrer, curator Magdalena Zych, and photographer Wojciech Wilczyk have researched representations of the Holocaust in Polish folk art. Their work culminated in an exhibition at the Ethnographic Museum in Kraków, Terribly Close: Polish Vernacular Artists Face the Holocaust, which was on display from December 2018 to March 2019. Join the curators for a presentation about these uncanny, baffling, and at times deeply empathic works of art.
