Situated in what was the heart of Edinburgh’s once thriving Jewish community, this free exhibition reveals for the first time the little known history of Jews in Edinburgh. Stories of immigration, World Wars, local conflict and daily life are explored and contextualized through mapping the impact of this once important community on the City itself.
Edinburgh Jews is initiated by the Jewish Studies, School of Divinity, University of Edinburgh in collaboration with the School of Architecture and the department of Cultural Studies, University of Edinburgh.
