Dear Friends,

I'm happy to announce that the images you helped me create will be exhibited at the brand new Jewish center community center in the town of Oswiecim itself! This is a wonderful opportunity to share a side of the story of life after Auschwitz that is rarely seen. About a million people travel through Auschwitz every year, and the hope is to reach them so they see a more nuanced perspective of modern-day history. 

The show will take place in May and I am hoping to be there in person myself to set it up and meet everyone in person during the opening. In order to get to Poland I am raising funds off-site, but am offering limited edition photo prints to those who can help out. If you would be willing to contribute to this, please be in touch through this site or contact me directly at danny@dannyghitis.com. 

Once again I am so grateful for all of your support! 

If you'd like to see the images once again, here they are on my website.

Warm regards,

Danny

Hi Everyone,

I'm happy to say that my project on the town of Oswiecim has been published in several places. Just wanted to share some links with you so you can see how your contributions helped make this project a reality. Thanks to you I was able to spread the word about this complex issue to thousands of people.

Update #15

Prints Deadline

Comment

Hi Everyone!

To speed up this process a bit I'm setting a deadline for choosing prints. Please select your choices by Thursday, July 29th. If you can't decide by then either let me know or I'll choose for you by default.

Thanks!

Danny


Update #14

Choose your print!

Comment

Hi Everyone,

I'm back in the Big Apple, getting all settled into a new apartment and city life...And it's time to get you guys some pictures!

In the spirit of collaborative project-making, I think it would be best to give you guys a choice of which print/s you receive (for those who signed up for a print reward). If you would be so kind as to spend a few minutes on my blog (http://dannyghitis.blogspot.com) you'll find all sorts of slideshows. Since the subject matter from this project is quite heavy, I'll also offer any image from my archive as a print reward (http://dannyghitis.photoshelter.com). Please find your favorite pictures and send me an e-mail at dghitis@gmail.com. If you would prefer that I choose them for you instead just let me know.

I am having these printed all at once, so I won't be able to send them out until everyone chooses their prints!

Much thanks,
Danny
