Statementfeatured

By AEJM / Eva Koppen on

The Board of AEJM regret the recent resignation of Prof. Peter Schäfer as director of the Jewish Museum Berlin, Germany. It is of great importance in today’s world that museums in general, and Jewish museums in particular, remain independent institutions. Museums should be ‘safe places for unsafe ideas’ and should not become the victim of the expectations that a variety of audiences, organisations or governments may have of their performance. Their exhibitions, programming and leadership may be criticised by society at large, but should not be interfered with. The museum leaders should only be accountable to their respective governing bodies. Statement on the resignation of Prof. Peter Schäfer as director of the Jewish Museum Berlin by the AEJM Board

What can we do to make everybody happy? How should we arrange the state so that all its citizens are content? Is it easy to govern a state? These are the questions posed by Matt, protagonist of the book King Matt the First by Janusz Korczak. POLIN Museum of History of Polish Jews invites children and adults to a meeting with the 10-year old king, which will surely prove to be an unforgettable adventure. Together, they will seek answers to the questions concerning the labour of governing a state. Thanks to fairy tale-like illustrations by Iwona Chmielewska, visitors will enter the world of Korczak’s novel. They will “put on the shoes” of the little king who has to take the throne and arrange anew a war-torn country, experiencing various trials and tribulations in the process. On the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining independence POLIN wishes to help children understand the role of citizens in… | Read more »
