On our trip to Dresden, we will visit the library of exile exhibition by Edmund de Waal in the Japanese Palace together. The room installation features a library with more than 2,000 books, many in translation, and includes authors from antiquity to the present who had to leave their home country. The themes are migration and exile, but also understanding beyond the borders of language.
Léontine Meijer-van Mensch, our former program director, will introduce the work. After a fortifying lunch, the HATiKVA association, the educational and meeting center for Jewish history and culture in Saxony, will guide us through and tell us about the tragic and eventful past of the Dresden synagog, built by Gottfried Semper from 1838 to 1840 and destroyed in the Reichspogromnacht of 1938.
