HMD 2013 - NEW

In January over 1,000 students will participate in Jewish Museum Holocaust workshops. Many of these include the opportunity for students to hear personal testimony from a Camp Survivor or a Kindertransport Refugee.  We run Holocaust workshops throughout the year. 



'Dear Harry
I think today has changed me forever. I didn't know before how Jewish people suffered and were killed.....I am not ashamed or embarrassed to say how it has really affected me emotionally. Your story has made me think about how I treat other people.'
Mohammed year 9, Tower Hamlets

The Learning Team is very excited about our upcoming exhibition featuring the works of prominent artist RB Kitaj....and the new workshops we will be running throughout the duration.

R. B. Kitaj (1932–2007) was one of the most significant painters of the post-war period. His work defied the trend in abstract art prevalent in the 1960s and brought him to the forefront of British figurative painting.

The exhibition at the Jewish Museum London will feature over 20 works in which Kitaj explored his Jewish identity, including iconic paintings such as The Wedding; If Not, Not; Cecil Court, London W2 (The Refugees) and The Jewish Rider.

If you would like to know more about our learning programmes which explore diverse themes including identity, belonging and life in the 'diasporic world' as well as practical workshops please contact admin@jewishmuseum.org.uk
