Abstract:

Polish-Jewish photographer Boris Kowadlo (1911-1959) fell into oblivion after his early death. He was the photographer of the post-war Jewish community after he had gone into hiding during the war and had a very difficult start as a Polish immigrant in Amsterdam in the 1930s. Two themes were very important to him: the post-war (ruined) Amsterdam 'Jewish neighborhood' and the newly established state of Israel. He made penetrating black and white photographs of both. Unfortunately, after his death, his photo archive was scattered and partly lost. As a picture of the Jewish community that has re-established itself after the war, Kowadlo's photographs are special witnesses.

De Nederlands-Poolse fotograaf Boris Kowadlo (1911-1959) legde in de jaren veertig en vijftig een uniek beeldarchief aan van het joodse leven in Nederland en Israël, waarin herinnering en herleving de centrale thema's zijn. Hij maakte indrukwekkende foto's van de vervallen en verlaten Amsterdamse Jodenbuurt, en volgde tegelijk als fotojournalist de opbouw van de Nederlands-joodse gemeenschap na 1945. Zijn reportages van de jonge staat Israël getuigen behalve van zijn grote fotografische talent en vakmanschap ook van geloof in een nieuwe toekomst voor het joodse volk. Dit boek geeft voor het eerst een breed overzicht van het oeuvre van Kowadlo, en bevat tevens een biografie en fragmenten uit zijn onlangs ontdekte memoires, geschreven tijdens zijn onderduik.
