Between 2010-2011 the Jewish Museum was one of a number of partner organisations participating in Judaica Europeana, a European Commission funded project which works to identify content documenting Jewish presence and heritage in European cities.
Through the project the museum digitised and uploaded items from the collection on the Europeana website, a common point of access to millions of digital objects housed in Europe’s museums, libraries and archives. The site's multilingual search engine enables users to find, view and compare cultural and scientific resources dispersed across the continent.
As well as contributing photographs, documents and objects, the Museum digitised and transcribed 150 interviews from its oral history collection, covering subjects such as the Jewish East End and Refugees from Nazism. You can listen to the interviews here.
The project also funded a range of education programmes with schools and higher educational institutions, enabling more people to appreciate the rich material available on Britain’s Jewish heritage.
