An exhibition dedicated to David Bajgelman, a colourful and important person in the musical world of the Polish interwar period and the war years. Musician, composer and conductor for many years connected with Łódź. He composed theatre and cabaret music, managed many orchestras, wrote popular hits, but in the first place he will be remembered as the author of the poignant “musical stories” of the Holocaust - songs that were created in the Łódź ghetto. In order to commemorate him, on the occasion of the 74th anniversary of the liquidation of the ghetto, we dedicated three projects to him: an exhibition and two concerts.
"... God closed the world and it's night everywhere ..." the words of one of his songs created in the Łódź ghetto say everything, create a tragic picture of the times and the last years of the life of a great Jewish artist.
