On 24 February 2022, Ukraine was invaded by Russian military forces. Massive missile attacks hit cities and small towns across the country. Fleeing the war, more than 6 million people, mainly women and children, left Ukraine. Half of them crossed the Polish border. Almost 150,000 Ukrainians found refuge in Kraków with the help of volunteers and ordinary citizens. The humanitarian catastrophe caused by the war became a great challenge, but people could see the evidence of the best human qualities and boundless love in this chaos and horror.
The Galicia Jewish Museum presents the project “On our way home”. 10 photographic stories in a public space in old Kazimierz tell about the difficult path that Ukrainians have to go through and about the essential things they carry throughout their journey – a book, a pair of dance shoes, a toy, and also their experiences, love of Cracovians and spirit of solidarity.
