  • About the Exhibit (April 1 – May 15, 2022)
    Hannah Kozak retraces her father’s footsteps of his stays in eight Nazi forced labor camps in Germany from 1943 until liberation on May 8, 1945. She photographed entirely on film on a 1961 Rolleiflex 2.8F and had 200 hand printed silver gelatin prints by a master printmaker. 40 of these black and white photographs will be displayed at the JCC.
