Lost Prague ghetto in pictures

Prague Jewish quarter is only a fragment of former Jewish ghetto. At the end of 19th century, the ghetto was demolished as a part of a slum reclamation. It raised an interest about the ghetto and painters wanted to capture last views on this part of city with thin and crooked streets.

Interest of artists became with the enlightenment and ended with ghetto itself. Painters had as a motif life on streets, Jewish cemetery, pictures of Jewish families and others. There are paintings of Antonin Slavicek, Ludek Marold, Josef Manes, Vojtech Hynais and the others.

Two hundred pictures can be seen in Museum of Capital city of Prague at Florenc from Tuesday to Sunday 10 AM – 6 PM. The exhibition ends 28th August.
