Space & Memory: The Presence of Jewish Absence in Poland's Contemporary Landscape



The project “Space & Memory: The Presence of Jewish Absence in Poland’s Contemporary Landscape” was supported by Humanity in Action as a grant competition project.

Humanity in Action Senior Fellows Łukasz Posłuszny, Michelle Shofet and Marissa Sophia Schneiderman created this project, to re-conceptualize the ways of remembering the war and the Holocaust, and to discuss social aesthetics of monuments and alternative forms of memory in the context of trauma, and on the other hand it also promoted tolerance among young people and a motivation to fight anti-Semitism. This team examined alternative modes of remembering the Holocaust and Jewish life in Poland through a multimedia approach consisting of interviewing, field recording, mapping and analog photography, as well as through workshops.
