title Can preservation Bring Back the Genius Loci? Creating a Jewish Place in a Town with no Jews
source ENVISIONING ARCHITECTURE: IMAGE, PERCEPTION AND COMMUNICATION OF HERITAGE [ISBN 978-83-7283-681-6],Lodz University of Technology, 23-26 September 2015, pp.268-279
summary The paper discusses the restoration and preservation of a Jewish Heritage site in a small town in Slovakia. The Jewish Suburbia of Bardejov, a spiritual complex with tremendous historical, architectural and urbanistic values has been neglected and misused since the disappearance of the town’s Jewish community during WWII. The question that the paper addresses is whether architectural preservation can bring back the historic cultural meaning and reinstate the spirit of place, the genius loci, without the people who occupied it - those who previously used the space and created its role and significance.
