PROLOGUE - BOOK LAUNCH YOSEF WOSK
In 1932, the budding 23-year-old photographer Nachum
Gidalewitsch (who would become the celebrated Israeli
photographer Tim Gidal) set out from Munich to visit rela
tives and document what he viewed as exotic locals in Jewish
Poland. The extraordinary photographic record of that visit is
presented here for the first time in book form, in a poignant
remembrance of a community that had no way to know it was
in its last years.
Recently inducted as an Officer of The Order of Canada and
described as a Renaissance man of the 21st century,
YOSEF WOSK has been deeply involved in education, the arts,
libraries, museums, social services, nature, heritage preser
vation, religion and wide-ranging philanthropy. A rabbi and
community activist, cited as a polymath and a rebel brain, he
is a published author of multiple topics and styles, as well as
an Adjunct Professor of Humanities at Simon Fraser Univer
sity where he formerly served as Director of Interdisciplinary
Programs. Besides curating exhibitions and writing essays on
aesthetics, he has been collecting art for over fifty years and
has one of the most significant photography collections in the
province.
