Lecture: “Polish architects of Jewish descent”

Graphic with the name of event.

March 27, at 12:00 pm


The lecture referred to the exhibition “A world before a catastrophe. Krakow’s Jews between the wars”, on show at the ICC in 2007. It was devoted to women architects, such as Diana Reiter, Rela Schmeidler, Helena Syrkus, and Eliza Unger.


The community of Jewish architects and builders had a significant contribution to the development of interwar Poland. Among them, women played an important role: well educated, eager to use the language of modern architecture and urban planning, they were respected and recognised within the architectural community. Unfortunately, World War II and the Holocaust put an end to their careers.


The lecture took place online via Zoom. Admission was free.


Lecture from the series: “Decades with Art”.
