Leave to Land: The Kitchener Camp Rescue, 1939

In 1939 the Kitchener Camp was set up in a derelict army base in Sandwich, saving 4,000 men from the Holocaust. This exhibition brings together archival records and family treasures to build a moving and compelling picture of this unlikely sanctuary.

The persecution of German Jews began as soon as Hitler took power in January 1933. Jews were stripped of their civil and human rights, their homes, and their means to earn a living. Attacks on synagogues, Jewish shops and homes, and Jewish people increased in the lead up to the second world war, culminating in Kristallnacht in late 1938.

Many Jews left Germany during the 1930s, but their capacity to do so was restricted by other countries’ strict immigration quotas and the need to demonstrate that they could support themselves in a new country.


Näitus “Judaism ja juudi tavad”

Before the Second World War, a small but active community operated in Valga. The war, the Holocaust and the Soviet regime destroyed this community. Generations grew up in the city who have no knowledge or historical memory of Jews, their faith and customs. The Valga Museum organizes an exhibition about Judaism and Jewish customs in cooperation with the Estonian Jewish Museum and with the support of the Estonian state. A lecture on Judaism and Jewish customs will be held at the opening of the exhibition, followed by a kosher cooking workshop. The Days of European Jewish Culture will be organized in Valga for the first time.


Memory exhibition

For the New Jewish Year 5784 and as part of the European Day of Jewish Culture, the exhibition "Memory", created by the National Library of Israel, was hung on the fence of the Sofia Synagogue. This exhibition is based on archival materials, memoirs, press clippings, historical photographs, municipal registers, postcards and other memorabilia of European Jewish communities, with each poster providing a window into the history of a given community.
We suggest you go for a walk until the end of October and take a look. Which documents keep your memory alive?

Salonique, « Jérusalem des Balkans », 1870-1920. La donation Pierre de Gigord

Ville cosmopolite, comme d’autres grands ports du Levant, Salonique – la Thessalonique grecque sous l’Empire ottoman – fut longtemps une cite juive ou les commerçants, toutes confessions confondues, fermaient le samedi et durant les fêtes juives. Les 150 œuvres de l’exposition du mahJ restituent l’histoire de Salonique de la seconde moitié du XIXe siècle à la fin de la Première Guerre mondiale.

Le don de près de 400 photographies et documents au mahJ par Pierre de Gigord, grand collectionneur dévoué à l’histoire de l’Empire ottoman, à l’œil avisé et à l’admirable générosité, constituent un enrichissement majeur pour le mahJ, dont la collection est désormais une référence sur la « Jérusalem des Balkans ». Les tirages albuminés du premier photographe local, Paul Zepdji, les négatifs sur plaques de verre inédits d’Ali Eniss, drogman au consulat d’Allemagne, amateur passionné auteur d’une vivante chronique photographique de la ville, font revivre un monde disparu.


Oprowadzanie po wystawie „Pomniki oporu. Sztuka wobec powstania w getcie warszawskim (1943-1956)”

Zapraszamy na oprowadzanie kuratorskie po wystawie „Pomniki oporu. Sztuka wobec powstania w getcie warszawskim (1943-1956)”, które poprowadzi współkurator wystawy Michał Krasicki.

Wydarzenie odbędzie się w niedzielę 10 września 2023 roku o godzinie 11:00.

Oprowadzanie jest darmowe.

Na oprowadzanie będzie można zapisać się od 27 sierpnia mailowo pod adresem (w tytule prosimy wpisać „Oprowadzanie 10.09").
Pomniki oporu to największa i jak dotąd najbardziej zróżnicowana prezentacja sztuki o powstaniu w getcie warszawskim rozpięta między wojną a początkami odwilży (1943–1956). Wybrane przez kuratorów rzeźby, pomniki, plakaty, grafiki i zdjęcia przybliżają nie tylko wielowymiarowość tematu oraz jego ogromne znaczenie towarzyszące całym pokoleniom, ale także trudności i emocje bliskie ich twórcom.

Na wystawie prezentowany jest obszerny wybór prac plastycznych, również tych do tej pory nieznanych, między innymi wielkoformatowe socrealistyczne obrazy olejne, projekty plakatów rocznicowych z lat 1945-1948, a także rysunki, fotografie, rzeźby i dzieła metaloplastyczne z epoki.
