It is the first exhibition on such a scale dedicated to the Jewish community in Lower Silesia in the afterwar period. The display featured unique photographs, documents and films.
After World War II Lower Silesia had the highest concentration of Polish Jews saved from extermination. It resulted in creating a new notion in historiography - “Jewish settlement”, which described at first a concentration of a dozen, and later, of over 40 locations in which circa 100 thousand Jews, including over 86 thousand Polish citizens from Soviet Union, settled after the World War II.
The majority of this group later emigrated from Poland.
However, Jewish organizations are still active in Lower Silesia to this day.
