Aiming to broaden people’s attention from the empty synagogues of Kazimierz and the death factory of Auschwitz, British photojournalist Chris Schwarz and writer-historian Jonathan Webber set off to record the lesser-known places of massacre and murder around southern Poland (Galicia)—a plaque in a forest clearing or a ramshackle synagogue in some forgotten village. These ghostly images are starkly displayed in this intelligent and worthwhile museum, which is set in a covered warehouse. The result reflects the breadth of crimes committed mainly by locals. A bookstore, cafe, and information point provide further reason to visit.
