About the exhibition

Unfinished Lives is an ongoing project consisting of a travelling exhibition presenting artists who were murdered during WW2 because of their Jewish origins. It allows them to reveal themselves through their art.

The exhibition started as a permanent exhibition at the White Stork Synagogue in Wroclaw, Poland. After its expantion, it became a hybrid, analog-virtual project.

Additionally, there is the concert Unfinished Lives, with Bente Kahan, Ronen Nissan and the NFM Leopoldinum Orchestra Wrocław, Poland.

The exhibition exists in English, German, Polish, Ukrainian and Norwegian. We continue to look for international partners to help expand it. We wish to present it at multiple venues in Europe.
