Ghetto-era works

“Chaim Rumkowski in the Ghetto of Lodz,” probably the artist’s definitive statement about the ambiguous realities of the situation in the ghetto – including a kind of super-melodramatic apotheosis of Rumkowski, the “Eldest of the Jews” in the Litzmannstadt ghetto. Scanned from the 2009 book by Joanna Podolska about Jewish Łódź. Original in Jewish Historical Institute, Warsaw (Żydowski Instytut Historyczny), A-163 7416
