Last Folio Exhibition

An abandoned Jewish school in eastern Slovakia is the starting point for this photo exhibition by Yuri Dojc.

The photo exhibition Last Folio by Yuri Dojc documents Jewish communities in Slovakia, where time has stood still since World War II. The starting point is the find of an abandoned school frozen in time as on the day the students were deported to concentration camps: with open notebooks, books and sugar in the cupboards. In 2006-2007, Dojc photographed the objects left behind and, with portraits, immortalised them as the only survivors of a lost culture.
