Moshe Rosman, "How to Tell Our Story: Jewish Museums, Jewish History"

Dr. Max and Gianna Glassman Israel Exchange Scholar Lecture

Contemporary historical museums tend not to exhibit artifacts. They use multi-media to tell a story. This story is an interpretation of history designed to convey a message. The illustrated lecture will analyze how five Jewish historical museums—Beit Hatefutsot in Tel Aviv, Jüdisches Museum Berlin, Musée d'art et d'histoire du Judaïsme in Paris, JEWISH MUSEUM and Tolerance Center in Moscow and POLIN: Museum of the History of Polish Jews—interpret Jewish history and the means by which they transmit their messages.

Moshe Rosman is Professor of Jewish History at Bar Ilan University. Read more here.
