What was the biggest challenge in the project?

"Sweet Home Sweet: A Tale of Salvation, Memory and Returns" is an exhibition devoted to the three generations of the Ores family and their relationship to Poland. It allows you to dive into the issues of passing the memory and narrative about the Holocaust from generation to generation and shows what relations with Poland the children and grandchildren of the survivors have. The online photo gallery was supposed not only to present photos online, but also to help families find their relatives in the photos and learn about their history.

What was important to us?

  • Online gallery

    The main element of the website is a gallery with 110 photos presenting the history of the Ores family. Users can view photos and descriptions on both desktop and mobile devices

  • Search engine for people in photos

    The photo gallery is equipped with a search engine for people in photos that works on the filtering principle. The user has the option to mark selected names from the list to view only photos with selected people.

  • Contact form

    As part of the work on the website, we have prepared a subpage with a contact form that allows you to send video material. Thanks to this, people related to the family history and

  • Subpage with films about Poland

    For the presentation of video materials sent via the form, we have prepared a

    subpage for uploading films. Thanks to this, the collected materials complement the history and memories presented in the photos of the exhibition "Photos From The Jar".

The design of the website was of great importance which is why each of the main subpages has been designed individually.

What was the work on the project like?

After getting acquainted with the genesis of the exhibition and the story of the author of the photos, we prepared functional mock-ups showing the layout of the content on both desktop and mobile devices. After approving the website structure, we started to create a graphic design, taking into account the style of other promotional materials and the unique nature of the photos. During coding, we uploaded all the photos to the website and prepared the signatures of the people in the photos.

After the website design was completed, the online photo gallery was launched together with a permanent exhibition presented on a daily basis at the Galicia Jewish Museum. Thanks to the commitment of the entire team and efficient communication with the creators of the exhibition, the memories and stories captured in the photos are now available to users from all over the world.
