"Brings together forty studies written in relation to the First Congress of Jewish Art in Poland held at Kazimierz on the Vistula River in 2008. A group of specialists from most important world scientific centers presented the results of their research into extensive, frequently still unfamiliar, terrain of Jewish architecture, painting, ritual objects, photography and film. This has produced a broad panorama of artistic and culture phenomena occurring in many communities from St. Petersburg and Kiev through Vilna, Lwow, Warsaw, Breslau to as far as Berlin, Paris, London and New York, all set against the background of various intellectual, religious and political attitudes of the people of those times. Thus, the volume recalls the image of the heritage of the perished world and brings up many outstanding people, events and works of art from the depths of oblivion." (back cover) Scarce.
