Od 18 listopada Żydowskie Muzeum Galicja prezentuje wystawę Romek Marber - Grafiki. Jest to wystawa grafik Romka Marbera, wybitnego artysty polsko-żydowskiego pochodzenia, który od 1946 roku mieszka i pracuje w Wielkiej Brytanii.
Romek Marber jest w Polsce niemal nieznany. Wystawa w Żydowskim Muzeum Galicja jest pierwszą okazją dla polskiego widza do zapoznania się z jego projektami – także do spotkania z samym artystą, który po raz pierwszy od 1945 roku wraca do Polski, by uczesniczyć w wernisażu wystawy.
Ekspozycja ma charakter retrospektywny – obejmuje wszystkie najważniejsze projekty Marbera: te wykonane dla czasopism (The Economist, New Society, The Observer Magazine, Queen Magazine), okładki dla Penguina i Pelikana, animacje stworzone na potrzeby filmu, ale również szereg innych prac tego wybitnego grafika, m.in. plakaty, materiały reklamowe, mapy, logotypy, projekty typograficzne.
Wystawa została przygotowana we współpracy z Wydziałem Sztuki Uniwersytetu w Brighton. Jej prezentacja jest możliwa dzięki wsparciu Fundacji Davida Berga.
Since 18 November an exhibition titled Romek Marber: Graphics is on display at the Galicia Jewish Museum. It is an exhibition of graphic works by Romek Marber, a distinguished Polish-Jewish artist who has been living and working in Great Britain since 1946.
Romek Marber is relatively unknown within his native Poland. The exhibition at the Galicia Jewish Museum is the first opportunity for a Polish viewer to interact with his works. Guests will even have the opportunity to meet the artist himself, who will be visiting Poland for the first time since 1945, to participate in the opening of the exhibition.
The exhibit is retrospective – it includes all of the most important works of Marber: those created for magazines (The Economist, New Society, The Observer Magazine, Queen Magazine), book covers for the Penguin and Pelican Publishing companies, film animations and many more works by the prominent graphic designer, e.g. posters, commercials, maps, logos and typography.
The exhibition was created in cooperation with the Faculty of Arts of the Brighton University. The presentation has been made possible thanks to the sponsorship of The David Berg Foundation.

Kazimierz is a historical district of Kraków and Kraków Old Town, Poland. Since its inception in the fourteenth century to the early nineteenth century, Kazimierz was an independent city, a royal city of the Crown of the Polish Kingdom, located south of Kraków Old Town and separated by a branch of the Vistula river. For many centuries, Kazimierz was a place of coexistence and interpenetration of Christian and Jewish cultures, its north-eastern part of the district was historic Jewish, whose Jewish inhabitants were forcibly relocated in 1941 by the German occupying forces into the Krakow ghetto just across the river in Podgórze. Today Kazimierz is one of the major tourist attractions of Krakow and an important center of cultural life of the city.The boundaries of Kazimierz are defined by an old island in the Vistula river. The northern branch of the river (Stara Wisła – Old Vistula) was filled-in at the end of the 19th century during the partitions of Poland and made into an extension of ul. Stradomska Street connecting Kazimierz district with Kraków Old Town.
Jews had played an important role in the Kraków regional economy since the end of the 13th century, granted the freedom of worship, trade and travel by Bolesław the Pious in his General Charter of Jewish Liberties issued already in 1264. The Jewish community in Kraków had lived undisturbed alongside their Christian neighbours under the protective King Kazimierz III, the last king of the Piast dynasty. Nevertheless, in early 15th century pressured by the Synod of Constance some dogmatic clergy began to push for less official tolerance. Accusations of blood libel by a fanatic priest in Kraków led to riots against the Jews in 1407 even though the royal guard hastened to the rescue.
As part of the re-founding of the Kraków university, starting in 1400, the Academy began to buy out buildings in the Old Town. Some Jews moved to the area around modern Plac Szczepański.The oldest synagogue building standing in Poland was built in Kazimierz at around that time, either in 1407 or 1492 (the date varies with several sources). It is an Orthodox fortress synagogue called the Old Synagogue. In 1494 a disastrous fire destroyed a large part of Kraków. In 1495 the Polish king Jan I Olbracht transferred the Jews from the ravaged Old Town to the Bawół district of Kazimierz. The Jewish Qahal petitioned the Kazimierz town council for the right to build its own interior walls, cutting across the western end of the older defensive walls in 1553. Due to the growth of the community and influx of Jews from Bohemia, the walls were expanded again in 1608. Later requests to expand the walls were turned down as redundant.
The area between the walls was known as the Oppidum Judaeorum, the Jewish City, which represented only about one fifth of the geographical area of Kazimierz, but nearly half of its inhabitants. The Oppidum became the main spiritual and cultural centre of Polish Jewry, hosting many of Poland’s finest Jewish scholars, artists and craftsmen. Among its famous inhabitants were the Talmudist Moses Isserles, the Kabbalist Natan Szpiro, and the royal physician Shmuel bar Meshulam.Wikipedia

The Anniversary of the Establishment of the Kraków Ghetto
On 3 March 1941, Otto Wachter, the governor of the Kraków district, issued a decree to establish a ghetto for Jews in Kraków. The ghetto, which was located in the Podgórze district, had an area of about 30 hectacres and was bordered by the Wisła River, the Rynek Podgórski, the Krzemionki Hills and the railway tracks to Kraków-Płaszów. The ghetto was closed on 21 March 1941. About 18,000 Jews from Kraków were forced to move into the ghetto. Few of them survived the war.
The Galicia Jewish Museum took part in the commemoration of these events. The day of 3 March 2012 was filled with various events remembering the establishment of the Kraków Ghetto. At 11:00, a walk through the area of the former ghetto connected with a photography workshop was attended by 90 people. The participants, accompanied by tour guides Małgorzata Fus and Bartosz Wencel, took pictures in the most important parts of the former ghetto. The event was organized in conjunction with the Art of Photography Workshop.
At noon, actors from the Barakah Theatre stood in some of the most important parts of the city - the Main Market Square (Rynek Główny), Szeroka Street and Rynek Podgórski - and read memoirs by ghetto survivors. This events garnered much attention from the passersby and was a powerful public commemoration of the tragic events which took place in Kraków 71 years ago.
At 17:00, citizens of Kraków took part in a lecture at the Galicia Jewish Museum titled Childhood Behind the Ghetto Walls - The Situation of Children in the Kraków Ghetto.
The last event of the day was the finale of a poetry contest, Walls Which Divide. Walls Which Connect. The best poems were presented at 18:30 in a multimedia presentation on Bracka Street and Plac Nowy. The contest was organized in cooperation with the Emultipoetry.edu portal.
We would like to extend our deepest thanks to all of our partners - the Art of Photography Workshop, the Barakah Theatre and the Emultipoetry.eu portal for their cooperation and for helping us commemorate the victims of the Kraków Ghetto.
