Since yesterday, the Galicia Museum in Krakow has been hosting “New realities of Jewish Heritage“, a conference marking the 10th anniversary of Jewish Heritage Europe. This event is organised by the Galicia Jewish Museum with the collaboration of the Taube Center for Jewish Life & Learning Foundation in Warsaw and Jewish Heritage Europe.
The AEPJ is present with its Secretary General, Assumpció Hosta, and its director, Victor Sorenssen. This meeting represents a unique opportunity to reflect on the state of development of Jewish heritage in Europe today. Over the course of two days, different sessions, presentations and round tables are taking place, exploring new project development strategies, the educational field in the field of Jewish heritage, as well as audience development and local engagement.
Yesterday, Victor Sorenssen had the honour of moderating a round table, entitled “Old Challenges, new solutions“, with the participation of Sam Gruber, a true reference in the field; Jakub Nowakowski, director of the Galicia Jewish Museum and Anna Szentgyorgyi, project manager of Rediscover of the Interreg EU Programme. The discussion was dynamic and of great interest, where fundamental aspects of today’s Jewish heritage, such as accessibility, digitisation and new approaches to Jewish heritage projects, were put on the table.
This conference also represents a unique framework for networking, as well as for the reunion with different representatives of member institutions of the AEPJ, and institutions with which we collaborate on a regular basis.
From AEPJ, we join in the celebration of these 10 years of Jewish Heritage Europe, and congratulate all the people and organisations that are making this great event possible.
