Jewish Cultural Contributions Exhibit

Jewish Emancipation in the late 18th and 19th centuries unleashed an unprecedented wave of creativity, which significantly enriched science, art, business, and politics across Europe – indeed, around the globe. Gustav Mahler, Neils Bohr, Estee Lauder, to name only a few of the better known.

Students from BYU Honors Program have created a moveable poster installation of the contributions of exemplary European Jews to their respective societies between 1890 to 1935, many of which have been overlooked until now.This stimulating and aesthetically moving exhibition introduces visitors to individuals whose lives, ideas, and accomplishments enriched the human experience from the twentieth century even until the present.

View the exhibit in the Rotunda, February 4 - 25.
