Nazi Cultural Plunder of Jewish ceremonial objects  19 October 2011

Lecture by curator Julie-Marthe Cohen (DUTCH)

Over two years Julie-Marthe Cohen, curator at the Jewish Historical Museum, worked on the publication Neglected Witnesses. The Fate of Jewish Ceremonial Objects During the Second World War and After. The publication consists of of ten articles by museum experts and researchers from Amsterdam, Vienna, Prague, Budapest, Frankfurt, Warsaw and Los Angeles on the Nazi plunder of ceremonial objects in several European countries and on the worldwide dispersion of these objects after the war. 

The publication reflects the complexity of provenance research of Jewish ceremonial objects and other categories of objects that are often poorly described, and contains images of objects and other relevant documents, such as those of the ERR.

The International Institute of Social History (IISH), the Jewish Historical Museum and the NIOD Institute for War, Holocaust, and Genocide Studies jointly organize a lecture by Julie-Marthe Cohen on Wednesday 19 October. In this lecture, Cohen will focus on the publication Neglected Witnesses and on the JHM WWII-related database.

Location: Auditorium, Jewish Historical Museum.
Admission: free entrance by showing your JHM museum ticket.
