A Timeless Story Told in Unique Photographs 11 Dec. 2012
By Michael Marvins - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have recommended this book for several years to dozens of people. It contains over 100 of Kaplan's photgraphs of Jewish and non Jewish daily life in this small Polish town from the late 1800's until 1939 when the Holocaust began. The book is unique because it smashes the sterotypes of Jewish small town life in Poland during Russian,Prussian/German,Nazi German, and Polish rule. And, the photographs make the case. everyday lives. From the towns' theatre to schools, scout groups to families at the riverfront "beach",and civic institutions like the fire department,thse were ordinary people just living their lives. Most of the three million Polish Jews killed in the Holocaust, were from towns like this.
The tragedy of Szczuczyn is that ninety nine percent of its Jewish citizens--including the photographer and his family-- were killed beginning in 1939, first by their Polish neighbors and finished by the Nazis. A timeline from the town's founding in the 1600's until 1945 and two incisive essays by Jonathan Rosen and Jeffrey Shandler put it all into perspective.
Kaplans photographs will be part of the permanent exhibit in the new, landmark Museum of the History of Polish Jews,which will open in 2013 in Warsaw.
