Musées juifs en Europe post-communiste

Deux informations à retenir en ce mois de janvier 2016 concernant les musées d’histoire juive :
– un numéro de la revue East European Jewish Affairs consacré aux nouveaux musées juifs en Europe post-communiste ;
– une séance organisée le 10 janvier au Centre d’Histoire juive (Center for Jewish History) de New York et dédiée aux musées juifs du 21e siècle en Europe de l’Est, avec un focus particulier sur le récent musée des Juifs de Pologne à Varsovie et sur le Musée juif et le Centre pour la Tolérance à Moscou (à ce propos lire aussi cet article paru en 2014 :  » Le musée juif et le centre pour la tolérance de Moscou« ). Ces interventions sont d’ailleurs liées à la parution du numéro ci-dessus mentionné.
