Luca Baraldi, renowned expert in memory studies, will be leading a session entitled “From social storytelling to social sensemaking: digitized memory and collective imagery.” The session will take place on May 9th at 4 pm CET and will be held online.

The European Days of Jewish Culture is proud to announce the winner of the second poster contest, Nikola Radic Lucati, Founder of the Center for Holocaust Research and Education in Belgrade, Serbia. The winning poster design features the Hebrew language as a clear and understandable symbol, avoiding the overt use of Jewish symbols such as the Magen David, menorah, and talit. The design includes the current Jewish calendar year, emphasizing the theme of Memory, and the use of color and rust brushstrokes are balanced, yet suggestive enough to support both cultural and memorial events.
Using a single poster for all EDJC events helps to create a homogeneous festival and facilitate communication between organizers and participants.
PARIS, FRANCE – The EDJC Organisers and Coordinators Meeting 2023 took place from February 22 to February 23, with the majority of its sessions and workshops occurring at the Memorial de la Shoah, and a final session and closing ceremony concluding the meeting at UNESCO headquarters in Paris. The bi-annual meeting for organisers and coordinators of European Days of Jewish Culture activities occurs in an extraordinary context and under the umbrella of an exceptional programme: the Citizens, Equality, Rights and Values programme of the European Union.
Organisers and coordinators of the European Days of Jewish Culture had the opportunity to spend two full days together in the city of Paris with the aim of training and reflecting upon how to work with the 2023 edition’s theme of memory.
Coordinators and organizers of the European Days of Jewish Culture attended the second day of the EDJC Organisers & Coordinators Meeting 2023.
On the final day of the conference, attendees were treated to a variety of panels and workshops. The morning began with a panel on the memory of Jewish culture as part of the European patrimony, featuring Laurence Sigal, Leopold Braunstein, and Monika Adamczyk-Garbowska. The panel explored the role of Jewish museums, the immaterial patrimony, and the translation of the Yzkerbikher for the Polish public.
After a coffee break, attendees split off into two parallel workshops, one focused on innovative memory activities and the other on the activities of Zikaron Basalon. The day continued with a panel on Commemorating the Shoah, featuring Lisa Saloch, Aline Benain, and Laurence Schram.
We are thrilled to announce the successful completion of the first day of the EDJC Organisers & Coordinators Meeting 2023. The program has been incredibly well-received, and the enthusiasm of the participants has been contagious.
The day began with registration and a warm welcome on the part of AEPJ President, François Moyse, and Memorial de la Shoah representatives. The plenary coordination session on the Practical Information Kit and communication guidelines for the European Days of Jewish Culture was informative and engaging, thanks to the excellent work of the AEPJ team. AEPJ partners – MahJ, Liberation Route Europe, Jewish Heritage Europe, and the National Library of Israel – provided valuable insights into the project. The visit to the Memorial de la Shoah in three groups was an opportunity to learn more about one of the essential institutions in Europe.
