"Memory Unearthed: The Lodz Ghetto Photographs of Henryk Ross" — LAST DAY

Primary tabs

(Feb. 25-Aug. 19) — When Henryk Ross (1910–1991) was confined to the Lodz Ghetto in Poland in 1940, he was put to work by the Nazi regime as a bureaucratic photographer for the Jewish Administration’s Statistics department. For nearly four years, Ross used his official position as cover, endangering his own life to covertly document the lives of others. As liquidation of the ghetto began and residents were deported to the camps, he buried an astonishing 6,000 negatives.

Ross survived, and in March of 1945, he unearthed his work with his own hands. Almost 3,000 negatives had survived the Polish winter. "Memory Unearthed: The Lodz Ghetto Photographs of Henryk Ross" reveals more than 200 of Ross’s photographs, supplemented by artifacts and testimony and presented in the context of Lodz Ghetto history.
