Baden bei Wien – Baden by Vienna – was long a popular spa and summer guests were originally attracted by the glamorous presence of the Imperial Court.
Many of these families who spent their summers in Baden had Jewish roots. They built villas in a variety of styles – historicist, art nouveau and modernist – a fascinating mixture and shaped summer life in Baden until 1938.
This exhibition is dedicated to ten families and their villas.
A special exhibit marking the 20th anniversary of the underground complex designed by the architect Martin Kvasnica containing remnants of Bratislava’s Old Jewish Cemetery, which was destroyed in 1944, — 23 graves surrounding the Chatam Sofer’s tomb.

The annual Day of Jewish Monuments in the Czech Republic opens Jewish heritage sites all over the country to visitors.
(It does not seems to be coordinated within the umbrella of the European Day of Jewish Culture).
On the web site, you can find lists of events and an interactive map with a list of participating sites and opening hours.
The annual conference of the International Association of Jewish Genealogy Societies (IAJGS) was to have taken place in Philadelphia, PA — but instead it will be conducted online.
As usual, there is a wide range of speakers.
Both pre-recorded and live streamed sessions will cover the gamut of the 2022 themes including Philadelphia and Western Pennsylvania research. DNA experts will explain the basics, as well as mitochondrial and endogamy analysis in multiple presentations. You can learn how families lived across the world from small towns of America to Germany and the Caribbean. Those who want to document your family history will be able to listen to sessions on writing your family stories and documenting them through multi-media and networking.
There will also be an online Exhibition Hall and an updated Digital Resource Library.
A series of events starting September 1 and continuing until the end of the year will be coordinated as the B’nai B’rith Jewish Heritage in the UK Festival — organised under the international umbrella of the European Days of Jewish Culture (EDJC), whose theme this year is “Renewal.”
(Click here for the “flipsnack” online catalogue of events).
The official kick-off date for the annual European Days of Jewish Culture is September 4 — but events in some countries are being held before and after.
The theme of the year’s EDJC is RENEWAL.
Some associated events will already take place in August.
