AEJM’s upcoming study visit on May 21/22 will take our museum educators to Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In cooperation with the History Museum of BiH our group will explore the city’s rich history with its different historical layers from Ottoman, Austro-Hungarian, Yugoslav and post-Yugoslav times, and its multi-ethnic heritage, including Islamic, Orthodox, Catholic and Jewish (both Ashkenazi and Sephardic) heritage. During the 2-day study trip, the group will visit different museums, including the Jewish Museum and the National Museum with the famous Sarajevo Haggadah, and will meet with local museum professionals behind-the scenes. An optional excursion programme (May 23) will bring participants to Srebrenica and Potocari in the eastern parts of the country, where sites and memorials dedicated to the Bosnian genocide during the Bosnian War (1992-1995) will be visited.
The study visit is open for museum educators from AEJM member institutions. Participation is free of charge. Please note that currently AEJM can accept 1 registration per institution only.
