- As many important texts focusing on Judaica objects were written at the end of the 19th and in the first third of the second century in German but were never translated into other languages we have had a number of – as we believe – key texts translated into English. Participants will study these articles in advance and prepare in pairs or alone a summary and interpretation of what they have read. The resulting presentation should be accompanied by visual material, i.e. objects from their respective collections.
- The second focus will be on the question of pre-war Judaica acquisitions. Since not all of the colleagues work in museums that had predecessor institutions, these will deal with pre-war Judaica acquisitions by regional private collectors or neighbouring municipal and other museums. The aim is to get an idea of dealer circles or individual sellers of Judaica objects and their expertise in this regard.
The AEJM online meeting for curators with a focus on provenance research, organized by Christina Meri, is scheduled for October 14th, 3:00 PM. This meeting will form an integral part of the CEP program.
Deadline for registration for the CEP Webinar is September 4th.
You can sign up through the registration form.
As usual we will send out the assignments in due time.
In order to make the results of our CEPs more visible and transparent for all AEJM members, but also to make our work comprehensible for the German donor, the Foreign Ministry, we want to publish our joint research results on the AEJM website in the future. For all participants and for us as editors this means a little more effort than in the past, but we will certainly all benefit from this.
We are looking forward to hearing from you!
