Jews in Oradea

About

“Gheorghe Sincai” Library, from Oradea, Romania, unfolded in October 2009 a photography exhibition which commemorated the cultural heritage left into the memory of our city by the important and prosperous Jewish community in the years prior to WWII. This moment is highly symbolic: 1944-2009. It represents the passing of 65 years since the closing of the Oradea ghetto and the departure of its inhabitants to a destination with no return.

The exhibition aims to evoke through photos and a multimedia application what our city has earned and, subsequently lost, in culture, architecture and social ambiance when nearly a third of its population disappeared in the summer of 1944.
