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.

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.

After Hitler had been appointed Reichskanzler in 1933, the life of the Jewish population in Germany changed abruptly: the expulsion of Jews from public life and society began. As a measure, it was decided to remove the „Jewish“ names or names marked as such from the alphabet table and to burn books by Jewish authors. The aim of this populist symbolic policy was to divide the German population into Jews and non-Jews. From Anton to Zeppelin, the alphabet and its spelling table have now become carriers of a German, non-Jewish identity – which has continued to this day. The multi-part installation by Ramesch Daha, Vienna, will be presented in the foyer of the museum as a work by the artist created especially for the museum.
