Solidarity with colleagues in Brussels

A murderous attack has taken four lives in the Jewish Museum of Belgium in Brussels on Saturday 24 May. The AEJM is deeply shocked by this atrocity directed against an institution that for many years stands for mutual understanding, tolerance and intercultural exchange - a symbol for the only possible future of Europe. We lack the words to describe our feelings of horror and we humbly want to express our solidarity with our friends. We mourn with our colleagues of the Jewish Museum in Brussels and the families and friends of those who lost their loved ones in this attack.

 


Jirí Fiedler (1935-2014)

The Jewish Museum in Prague with great sorrow announcees the tragic death of Jiří Fiedler, an employee of the museum for many years. The circumstances of his death have not yet been fully clarified. His funeral was held in Prague on 3 March 2014. For many years Fiedler worked on documenting Jewish sites in Bohemia and Moravia. His sudden death has come as a painful shock to all of the museum's staff who knew Jiří Fiedler as a helpful colleague and a wonderful person. See the museum's website for an In memoriam.
