After Martin Kapel was forced to leave Germany with his family and thousands of other Polish Germans in 1938, he spent a few weeks in a Shtetl in Poland, before being able to escape further Nazi persecution in a Kindertransport to the UK. He feels incredibly privileged to have experienced life in Brzesko, as shtetlehk (small Jewish towns) across Eastern Europe were completely eradicated in the Holocaust.

This project is both an exploration of Martin’s memories and an exploration of how we preserve and share lost history online.

Join us for the launch of this limited-edition publication with Holocaust survivor Martin Kapel and artist Paula Kolar.
