They Called Me Mayer July: Painted Memories of a Jewish Childhood in Poland Before the Holocaust
They Called Me Mayer July: Painted Memories of a Jewish Childhood in Poland Before the Holocaust at The Jewish Museum in New York, NY. "...Mayer Kirshenblatt has made it his mission to remember the world of his childhood in living color, lest future generations know more about how Jews died than how they lived. This unique project is a blend of memoir, oral history, and visual interpretation. Intimate, humorous, and refreshingly candid, the project is a remarkable record - in both words and images - of Jewish life in a Polish town before World War II, as seen through the eyes of an inquisitive boy."
