Archival photographs of Bialystok Jewish life, pre-1930 #poland #photographs

Bernard Flam

Hi from Paris,
Dear Steve,
May I take opportunity of your post to offer free download of pictures from 2013' Bialystok exhibition "Bilismy tu, We were there".
I was there for a few days in October 2013, amid a large tour of Poland.

This exhibition was organized by the city of Bialystok for commemoration of 70' years of ghetto liquidation with :
  • a section inside the museum, Jewish life in Bialystok before Shoah / Holocaust
  • and a section outside on panels on pavements around the museum, dedicated to the liquidation of the ghetto in 1943. I took pictures of all these panels with good resolution for each separate picture (ca 100).
As this exhibition is covered by some copyright and all pictures are too large to attach on this post (I attach just the billboard), I will send the batch by Wetransfer, contact me by private mail.

Here is a series of twenty-four photographs that appeared from
1924-1927 in the Forverts (Jewish Forward newspaper), all of people or
scenes from Bialystok. Some of the photos, however, were taken nearly
twenty years before they were published, i.e. at the time immediately
after the 1906 pogrom in Bialystok. Here is the link:
