Title Silent Places: Landscapes of Jewish Life

Author Gusky, Jeffery


ISBN: 9781585675166

Condition: softcover



Utterly haunting?and profound for their visual and artistic crystallization of places steeped in history?this collection of 98 deeply shadowed black and white photographs provides a window into the lives and deaths of Eastern European Jews in World War II.
An American doctor whose ancestors came from Russia, Jeffrey Gusky decided at 42 to learn photography and travel to Europe in order to directly confront the reality of modern Jewish history. Here are his images of Jewish cemeteries full of broken gravestones; ruined synagogues filled with trash and marred with graffiti; a Jewish home that is now used as a public toilet?"places where people lived, walked, worshipped, and were, ultimately, exterminated," muses Gusky in his short text.
