Lost & Found - A Family Photo Album

October 25, 2018 - April 28, 2019
Rosenberg & Winnick Galleries

Lost & Found tells the remarkable story of a family photo album that was owned and assembled in the years leading up to World War II by Anna Warshawska, who was deported in 1943 from the Kovno Ghetto together with most of her family. Prior to her deportation, Anna, more intimately known as Annushka, smuggled the album out of the city’s wartime Jewish ghetto, entrusting it to a non-Jewish Lithuanian family for safekeeping. The album was rediscovered in 2013 and, after some sleuthing and fortuitous discoveries, reunited with the descendants of Warshawska’s family.

Lost & Found is presented by Yeshiva University Museum, in cooperation with The International Centre for Litvak Photography, Kaunas.

The exhibition is made possible through the generous support of The Azrieli Foundation, the Rosenblatt Charitable Trust, and Anonymous. Additional support has been provided by the Slomo and Cindy Silvian Foundation, the New York State Council on the Arts, and by patrons and friends of Yeshiva University Museum.
