Exhibition of Antonín Kalina

Subakova 43, Třebíč

Antonín Kalina Memorial Hall was inaugurated in the Jewish quarter near the Rear Synagogue on 17 February 2017, on the 115th anniversary of Kalina's birth.


Two years later, on February 21, 2019, it was expanded by a section called The Children of Antonín Kalina.


In addition to Antonín Kalina, the exhibition focuses on the life stories of several exceptional personalities - photographer and historian Naftali Fürst, writer and Nobel Prize winner for literature Imre Kertézs, poet, writer and playwright Pavel Kohn, Jewish activist Israel Laszlo Lazar, filmmaker Alex Moskovic, physicist Felix Weinberg and Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel.

Deserved attention is also paid to Kalina's lifelong friend - physician and humanist Jindřich Flusser, who actively and significantly participated in the rescue of the boys in Buchenwald.

An integral part of the exhibition is the Tree of Life, a unique artistic blacksmith and metalsmith work of the masters and students of the Secondary Technical School in Třebíč. The leaves on the tree bear the names of the children saved by Kalina.
