Klezmer in Krakow
Friday, October 10, 2008
For 18 years, the historic Jewish quarter of Krakow has been home to a Jewish cultural festival -- nine days of dancing, lectures, and concerts. 25,000 people attend, most of them Poles with no Jewish family. Stephanie Rowden wondered what Jewish culture can mean in a place where it has been absent for 60 years. She produced the story as part of a public art project in Krakow.
