Jukebox. Jewkbox! A Jewish Century on Shellac and Vinyl. Stories from Poland

Emil Berliner, a Jewish immigrant to the United States, changed the world by inventing a gramophone and a record – the first global media of mass entertainment.

The exhibition Jukebox. Jewkbox! A Jewish Century on Shellac and Vinyl takes us on a journey through the less known territory of the world popular music and touches upon its links to the Jewish experience of the 20th century. The book titled Jukebox. Jewkbox! A Jewish Century on Shellac and Vinyl. Stories from Poland, which accompanies the exhibition, encourages its readers to take a fresh look at the Polish popular culture, often born along the rich Polish-Jewish cultural borderland.
