Roman Vishniac (1897–1990), an extraordinarily versatile and innovative photographer, created the most widely recognized photographic record of Jewish life in Eastern Europe between the two World Wars. This exhibition introduces recently discovered and radically diverse new bodies of work and repositions Vishniac's iconic photographs of Eastern Europe within the broader tradition of 1930s commissioned social documentary photography.

You are invited to join the group for coffee/lunch at the museum cafe Wise Sons Jewish Delicatessen after the tour. Approximate time 11:30. Afterwards, you may re-visit the exhibits on your own. Also of interest at the CJM: Bill Graham and the Rock & Roll Revolution

Cost is $10 for the docent plus adults $15, seniors $10, members of the CJM free.
