In 2015, independent researcher Mark Krenn crowned his long-term study of the Jewish community in Prekmurje with the monograph Julij Gyula Schönauer, Šalovo photographer, and on the occasion of the Day of Jewish Culture, he will prepare a special photo exhibition, which will show images from the life of Jewish families in Šalovci and the surrounding area, and which will be open to the public that day. Part of the history of the Jews from Šalovci and Prekmurje was masterfully articulated by the writer Dušan Šarotar in his historical narratives, based on thorough research. Šarotar has already received several literary awards for his works, most recently for the novel Zvezdna karta, for which he received the Župančič Award this year. Director of the Jewish Cultural Heritage Center, Maribor Synagogue, Boris Hajdinjak, author of numerous documentary exhibitions and professional, scientific and popular science texts, is one of the greatest experts on the history of Jews in Slovenia. The well-known TV journalist Igor E. Bergant will talk to the guests of the round table.
