A Shattered World

Many artifacts in the collection are remnants of the cultural life of Jewish communities that flourished for centuries and are no more. Some tell stories of families who were uprooted, expelled from their homes and scattered across the globe.

The varied items serve as silent memorials to the rich Jewish heritage that thrived until the Holocaust swept through Europe, Africa and Asia destroying the fabric of Jewish society.
