Last Folio: A Photographic Journey with Yuri Dojc
On view through August 9, 2011

Last Folio features stunning photographs taken by Yuri Dojc of once-vibrant Jewish communities throughout Slovakia. His photographic journey began in an abandoned school in Bardejov, where time has stood still since the day in 1942 when its students were taken to concentration camps. His images capture the poignant ruins of schools, synagogues, and cemeteries—remnants from a Jewish past. A documentary film created by Katya Krausova follows Dojc through Slovakia, and is part of the exhibition.
