Israel Before Israel - Photographs by Ze’ev Aleksandrowicz 1932–1936

In 2003 the Aleksandrowicz family discovered a suitcase in the attic of their house in Tel Aviv containing 15,000 negatives belonging to the late Ze’ev Aleksandrowicz, born in 1905 as Wilhelm Aleksandrowicz into a prosperous family of paper merchants in Krakow. The unexpected treasure brings to life the world of the 1920s and 1930s with pictures of his Polish origins, his student days in Vienna, and his travels to Palestine between 1932 and 1935.The exhibition in the Annex of the Jewish Museum is devoted in particular to Aleksandrowicz’s travels to Palestine. They show how the ardent Zionist’s enthusiasm for the country and all of its inhabitants were the inspiration for a fascinating photographic journey. In 1936 he married a women from an established Jewish family in Jaffa, after which he abandoned photography altogether.
