Jewish Country House conference @ Villa Stiassni, Brno | Jihomoravský kraj | Czechia

Jewish Country Houses and the Holocaust In History and Memory

This conference will investigate the fate in the Holocaust of Jewish country houses and the people who inhabited them. It will explore memory cultures that emerged afterwards and the Cold War context that shaped them. The conference will address and support curatorial, artistic, and narrative practices telling the difficult stories of genocide linked to these properties. As it does so, it will bring together academic historians, heritage professionals, and artists over three days at the Methodological Centre of Modern Architecture at the Villa Stiassni in Brno, Czech Republic. The built heritage of the Villa Stiassni, visits to the nearby villas Tugendhat and Löw-Beer, and an exploration of the experiences and memories of the Czech Jewish industrialist families who inhabited and fled from them will be an integral part of the conference.

Between Knowledge Of The History Of Rhineland Judaism And The Heritage Of Synagogues: A Responsibility Of Alsace @ Bibliothèque nationale et universitaire (BNU), Strasbourg
Jan 25 @ 18:30 – 20:00
Between Knowledge Of The History Of Rhineland Judaism And The Heritage Of Synagogues: A Responsibility Of Alsace @ Bibliothèque nationale et universitaire (BNU), Strasbourg | Strasbourg | Grand Est | France

Lecture by Catherine Trautmann, president of the Maison du Judaïsme Rhénan association, will discuss how three associations — the Society for the Study of Judaism in Alsace-Lorraine, Les Routes du Judaïsme Rhénan and the Maison du Judaïsme Rhénan — have created a new Rhineland Judaism Center.

They hope  to pool their resources within the framework of joint projects.

This conference is an opportunity to publicly present this dynamic, inspired by the example of the German ShUM cities (Mainz, Worms and Speyer) and Erfurt, whose Jewish heritage from the Middle Ages has been included on the UNESCO world heritage roster.

Under discussion  will be  the responsibility of Alsace, which has the largest concentration of Jewish heritage sites in France, for the protection, enhancement and access to this heritage.
