A Life Left Behind: The Leah Grochowska Gutman Collection

In 1938, Leah Grochowska (later Gutman) left her home in Bialystok, Poland, to join her brother in Palestine. In 2008, she donated a collection of photographs and other items to the Museum. As Suzy Snyder explains, these items help to document the life of one Jewish community in Poland on the eve of the Holocaust.
