EDJC 2021 > Austria > “The Last Europeans: Jewish Perspectives on the Crises of an Idea, The Brunner Family. An Estate”
The Last Europeans. Jewish Perspectives on the Crises of an Idea. The Brunner Family. An Estate. Guided tour through the current exhibition. Jewish Perspective on the Crises of an Idea 75 years after the end of World War II, Europe is threatened by a relapse into nationalist and xenophobic ideologies. The European imperative "Never Again!" is being challenged by many. The Jewish Museum Hohenems looks at Jewish individuals who, in the face of the destruction of Europe and the attempted extermination of European Jews in the 20th century, crossed national and cultural borders and once again vehemently demanded the universal validity of human rights. Based on their commitment to a united and peaceful Europe, this exhibition explores at the same time the threats that it is facing anew. The Brunner Family. An Estate Starting point for the exhibition "The Last Europeans" is the estate of Carlo Alberto Brunner. The Brunner family left Hohenems for Trieste in the first halt of the 19th century to contribute to the rapid development of the Habsburg Mediterranean metropolis. The family's steep social and cultural ascent ended with Europe's evolution into a continent of mutual hatred and in the devastation of two world wars, which scattered parts of the family throughout the world.
