Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe – Grants Programmes open for applications

By AEJM / Robbie Schweiger on

The Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe welcomes applications for the Spring grant round in all of its  grants programmes:   Archives and Libraries Grants Programme is open for applications Repositories across the breadth of Europe tell the story of the Jewish presence on this continent, from the Medieval period all the way up to the present day. Often fragmentary, at times fragile and generally underused, these records are some of the last surviving links between historic communities and the contemporary researchers investigating them. To enable and encourage access to documents of Jewish significance, the Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe offers the grants detailed below. We welcome applications from any organisation or institution active in Europe (this includes non-EU member states, such as Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Gibraltar, Iceland, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Liechtenstein, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Norway, Russia, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey, and Ukraine), where activities qualify as charitable under UK charity law.   Jewish  Education… | Read more »

Remembering the Kindertransport

On display at Jewish Museum London
-

To mark the 80th anniversary of the Kindertransport, discover the stories of six of the Kinder (child refugees) in their own words. In 1938-39 the British government allowed 10,000 Jewish and other ‘non-Aryan’ children from occupied Europe to come to Britain. This remarkable rescue operation became known as the Kindertransport. Now in their 80s and 90s, the Kinder have given their testimony through the medium of film. You can also see personal objects and artefacts that they brought with them from their homelands. As children they escaped violence and persecution, but went through painful separations, and their integration into British society was not always straightforward. This exhibition tells the story of rescue as well as stories of rupture, loss and regret. #kindertransport80
