www.novogrudek.co.uk
Following Holocaust Memorial Day, the London Jewish Cultural Centre are launching a new virtual exhibition www.novogrudek.co.uk. The exhibition illustrates what happened to the Jewish population of Novogrudek, a shtetl in Eastern Europe during the interwar and wartime years.

In 1931, Alexander Harcavy returned to the town of his birth bringing with him a photographer and cinematographer from Warsaw. His photographs are a window to a world that has disappeared, to the rich variety of Jewish life that existed in a town where more than half of its inhabitants were Jews.

After he left, and Novogrudek fell under German occupation, the towns' Jewish community, resident for over five hundred years, was destroyed by the Nazis through massacres and labour camp deprivation as part of the Holocaust.

This new website will be used as a resource for both students and teachers, to provide a comprehensive glimpse into history.
