A small exhibition dedicated to the pre-war Brzesko Jewish community was officially opened in Brzesko regional museum in September 2017.
Although small, this exhibition provides some basic facts about the history of the Jewish community in Brzesko, tells the story of several families, shows such objects as menora, tallit, kiddush cups, mezuza, etc. (it’s mainly Dov Landau who offered these objects as a gift to the museum, including a book which belonged to his father murdered by the Nazis in Auschwitz). Due to this exhibition visitors of the museum will be able to learn about the Jewish side of Brzesko history.
Especially worth mentioning is the virtual Book of Remembrance, which at this point includes 2 400 names of Jews from Brzesko and vicinity murdered in the Holocaust, and we hope that with the time passing by we’ll be able to recover more names. We could also find 115 pictures of Brzesko Holocaust victims, and these pictures are also presented at the exhibition, on the huge poster on the wall.
