Munich ’72 and Beyond

The Jewish Museum in Prague presents a film screening and discussion of the documentary film "Munich ’72 and Beyond."  


On September 5, 1972, Palestinian extremists infiltrated the athletes’ dorms at the Munich Summer Olympics to take 11 Israeli athletes hostage and eventually murdered them all before being killed or captured by the German police. Awardwinning filmmaker Stephen Crisman revisits that tragic day in chilling detail through new interviews with both Israelis and Palestinians, as well as family members, eyewitnesses, Olympic authorities and government officials. An intensely emotional account of the first act of modern terrorism viewed worldwide as it unfolded, "Munich ’72 and Beyond"  exposes shocking new information about the tragic events and their devastating aftermath, as well as chronicling the four-decade-long struggle to create a public memorial to the victims of the massacre. 

 

Director: Stephen Crisman

Producer: David Ulich, Steven Ungerleider

Executive Producer: Michael Cascio

 

In English. Entry is free of charge.

Quo Vadis Central Europe?

16. 10. 2016 16:00

Maisel synagogue, Maiselova 10, Praha 1

A discussion within the framework of the annual conference Forum 2000, dealing with the topic of the identity of contemporary Central Europe. In a region that witnessed the revival of democracy a quarter of a century ago after decades of totalitarianism, there is once again a growing chorus of political voices calling for the closure of national borders and for a reassessment of the political orientation towards western democracy. The rhetoric of these political elements is a combination of anti-liberalism, xenophobia and antisemitism, dormant for many years. What is the context for the crisis of democracy in Central Europe and what paths could it take? Among the invited guests are the historian Shlomo Avineri (Israel), the sociologist Jacques Rupnik (France), the journalist Konstanty Gebert (Poland) and the political analyst Péter Krekó (Hungary). The discussion will be moderated by Irena Kalhousová (London School of Economics and Political Science) and will be held in English with simultaneous translation into Czech. Free entry.

Cinegogue 2016: The Second Sex: Tilly Losch, Stella Simon, Maya Deren

09. 10. 2016 19:30

Spanish synagogue, Vězeňská 1, Praha 1

Cinegogue 2016 turns its attention to Jewish female artists and protagonists who left an indelible mark not only in the realm of experimental cinematography but also in the realms of photography (Stella F. Simon, Maya Deren), dance (Tilly Losch, Maya Deren), and film theory (Maya Deren). In this eighth year of the Cinegogue program we go for the first time beyond 1929, considered the definitive end of the silent era, to present short films that were intentionally shot as silent experiments focused exclusively on cinematic language. All the films will be accompanied by new scores specially composed for the program and performed by Berg Orchestra and arranged by its artistic director and conductor Peter Vrábel.

ARTHUR ROTHSTEIN: 20th Century Picture Stories

12. 05. 2016 18:00

Auditorium of the Jewish Museum’s Department for education
and culture, Maiselova 15, Prague 1
 

A lecture by Ann Rothstein-Segan, which will explore in detail the 50-year career of her father – the famous American photographer Arthur Rothstein (1915–1985). During his career, he produced a large number of iconic photographs that document a broad period of American history – from the worldwide economic crisis of the 1930s through to the Reagan administration of the 1980s. The lecture will also focus on a remarkable train of events during which Rothstein took, lost and rediscovered a unique series of photographs that depict the everyday life of Jewish refugees in Shanghai immediately after the Second World War. The lecture is being held as part of a programme accompanying the exhibition Stranded in Shanghai, which will be on display at the Jewish Museum's Robert Guttmann Gallery from May until September. In English. Free admission.

The multifaceted life of Oskar Baum (1883-1941): Gems from his braille papers KOPIE

09. 05. 2016 18:00

Auditorium of the Jewish Museum’s Department for education
and culture, Maiselova 15, Prague 1
 

A lecture by the Dutch researcher Emmy van Swaaij, who over the last few years has focused on an intensive study of the work of the German-language Jewish writer, journalist and music critic Oskar Baum – a close friend of Franz Kafka and Max Brod. Baum was a highly prolific writer and journalist, despite being blind. In addition to his published works, however, there is also a collection of texts that he wrote in Braille. This collection was donated to the Jewish Museum in Prague last year. The lecture will focus on the content of Baum's works in Braille, which are hard to access for the majority of those interested in his oeuvre and in the intellectual life of the famous Prague Circle. In English. Free admission.
