Dr. Romik will present her current research and exhibition project, which explores and preserves the unusual hiding places used by Jews in the Holocaust. Romik’s work combines archival investigation, theoretical research, architectural design, artistic practice, and social engagement. She has dedicated her efforts to investigating and preserving Jewish memory, especially its material and architectural traces, and the forgotten legacy of shtetls – small, historically Jewish towns.
