A New Day for the Golden Rose in L’viv

By Jason Francisco

Ceremonies in September mark the opening of The Space of Synagogues, a new Jewish memorial complex in L’viv, Ukraine. JHE Coordinator Ruth Ellen Gruber was on the international jury that in 2010 chose the memorial design following an unprecedented international competition.

In this essay, the writer and photographer Jason Francisco, an associate professor of film and media studies at Emory University who has followed the development of the project, discusses its significance. We also post a selection of his photos that document the process.
