The curators would like to thank all the participants in the Recovering Connections initiative for committing their time and efforts to bring it to fruition: Leon Charikar, Karolina Choina, Peter Coleman, Mary Cooper, Barbara Czyznikowska, Piotr Drażba, Elizabeth Frost, Ola Horbacz, Miriam Levene, Kazimiera Myers, Michael Myers and five individuals who prefer to remain anonymous.

We would also like to thank De Montfort University Leicester (UK), for providing us with a regular meeting space to develop and curate the content for this exhibition at the Campus’ Breathing Space.

Gil Pasternak’s contribution to the initiative was made possible through his role as Project Leader of Digital Heritage in Cultural Conflicts, a research programme that received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 699523, implemented in the United Kingdom by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) under Project Ref AH/S000119/1.

The Recovering Connections initiative and its resulting outputs have been financed by the Polish Community Support Funds of the Polish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Leicester Progressive Jewish Congregation.
