12/9/2016 WELCOME TO SLOVAKIA’S ‘JEWISH POMPEII’

After the fall of Communism, photographer Yuri Dojc returned to his native Slovakia to document the country’s Jewish community, which remained intact in every respect except one: Its people. Dojc’s new exhibition, “Last Folio,” opens this week at the Van Leer Jerusalem Institute. It features photos of dilapidated books, abandoned synagogues and decrepit old people, symbolizing a once buzzing Jewish life. He and curator Katya Krausova join host Gilad Halpern.
