Powerful Papercuts: A Remarkable Online Exhibition of Monika Krajewska’s “Burning” Cycle, a requiem for the Jewish world destroyed in the Shoah
We are privileged to host this online exhibition of work by the artist Monika Krajewska. They are drawn from her extraordinary cycle of papercuts called “Burning” — her requiem, she writes, “for the synagogues and ceremonial objects destroyed together [in the Shoah] with the communities that created and cherished them. If even synagogues and cemeteries were doomed, what was the fate of Torah scrolls, candelabra, books and fragile papercuts? Only slivers survived.”
