Our Museum is 10 years old!
On May the 18th, 2021, the Museum of Jewish history in Russia celebrated its 10th anniversary. Today the Museum continues its work in a somewhat abridged format - the pandemic has left its mark. But we persevere. To mark the anniversary and taking advantage of the month's of May richness with important dates and its association with the Victory Day, the Museum has opened an account on the project "Russian history in photographs''. It is a joint project created by Yandex Publishing House on the initiative of Russian Federation's Ministry of Culture, MAMM (Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow) and the Moscow city Department of Culture.
We are just at the beginning of this work, all the pictures are undergoing serious moderation process. However, you already can find the first photos from our extensive military archives on the project's page. Most of these archives were transferred to the Museum by our esteemed donors - the descendants of Jewish WWII veterans.
You can read more about our photo contribution here.
All the photographs from our Museum can be found also under the heading Sources - Institutions and Organizations - Museum of Jewish History in Russia. Soon they will appear in the Exhibitions section too, look out for the news on the Museum's social media and this website.
History always consists of facts; facts on the timeline. A photograph is a mirror of such facts. Here our and with the project missions coincide. We sincerely thank "Russian history in photographs'' for the cooperation!
