Take a guided tour of this acclaimed special exhibition, one of The New York Times “10 Can’t-Miss Shows in New York.” Tours are offered Tuesdays and Sundays at 2 PM through August 19.
When Henryk Ross was confined to the Lodz Ghetto in Poland in 1940, he was put to work by the Nazi regime as a bureaucratic photographer. For nearly four years, Ross used his official position as cover, endangering his own life to covertly document the lives of others. As liquidation began, Ross buried an astonishing 6,000 negatives—committing to the ground, and perhaps to future generations, “some record of our tragedy.” Henryk Ross survived, and in March of 1945, he unearthed his work with his own hands. The exhibition reveals more than 200 of Ross’s photographs, supplemented by artifacts and testimony and presented in the context of Lodz Ghetto history.
The tour is free with admission; advance registration for the tour is strongly recommended.
