Symposium "Museum – Science – Family Memory"
News from Feb 15, 2012
On the occasion of opening the exhibition "Berlin Transit: Jewish Immigrants from Eastern Europe in the 1920s", the Symposium "Museum – Science – Family Memory. Perspectives of an Unknown History of Migration" takes place on 24 March 2012.
Both symposium and exhibition are being developed in cooperation between the Jewish Museum Berlin and the research project “Charlottengrad and Scheunenviertel: Jewish Immigrants from Eastern Europe in Berlin in the 1920s and 1930s” at the Eastern Europe Institute of the Free University of Berlin. The symposium will further examine themes from the exhibition and the interaction between museum, research, and family memories, exploring a largely forgotten chapter of Berlin’s migratory history.
Concluding the symposium, a concert by Jascha Nemtsov and Tehila Nini Goldstein will take place: "A Capella Musicians 'New Jewish Music' in Berlin of the 1920s".
