Stranded in Shanghai: The Hongkew Ghetto through the Eyes of Refugees and the Lens of Arthur Rothstein

From 12. 05. 2016 - 09:00 to 11. 09. 2016 - 18:00

Robert Guttmann Gallery, U Staré školy 3, Prague 1.

In April 1946, prominent American photojournalist Arthur Rothstein took twenty-two photos that captured the living conditions of Jewish refugees in the Chinese city of Shanghai. Commissioned by the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA), Rothstein’s photos were taken seven months after the Pacific War had ended, yet they are a unique visual testimony to the sanctuary given to around twenty thousand Central European Jews during the period of World War II and the Shoah. This is the third exhibition at the Jewish Museum in Prague to look at the phenomenon of refugees and migration. Its aim is to acquaint a wider public with the still little known history of the so-called Shanghai Ghetto by presenting it not only through the eyes of a brilliant photojournalist but also through the experiences of the protagonists of the story, Czechoslovak Jews, who along with Jews from Austria, Germany, Poland, and Hungary found a haven in Shanghai at a time when, with rare exception, the entire world was refusing to accept refugees. Rothstein’s pictures give us extraordinary insight into the historical role of the photographer in the service of international organizations and into the importance of photojournalism in zones of conflict, humanitarian crisis, and catastrophe, where the style of objective visual reporting blends with the more emotionally engaged social and humanistic photography as well as with public relations strategies.

Exhibition The Missing Images: Eugeen Van Mieghem and the Jewish Emigrants to the New World

From 10. 09. 2015 - 09:00 to 10. 04. 2016 - 18:00

Robert Guttmann Gallery, U Staré školy 3, Praha 1

The Jewish Museum's third exhibition on the refugee phenomenon has been prepared in collaboration with the Eugeen van Mieghem Foundation and with support of the the Red Star Line Museum in Antwerp. Its focus is on the emigration of millions of people from Eastern Europe to America at the end of the 19th century and the start of the 20th. One of the main focal points of this emigration was the port of Antwerp and the Belgian shipping company Red Star Line, which transported ca. 2.4 million European emigrants to the New World between 1873 and 1934. Among them were hundreds of thousands of Eastern European Jews who were fleeing poverty, permanent oppression and recurring waves of pogroms. This exodus of emigrants in the port of Antwerp was depicted by the local artist Eugeen van Mieghem (1875–1930). In addition to 50 works by Eugeen van Mieghem, the exhibition also features posters of the Red Star Line and period photographs of the port of Antwerp. 



The exhibition was supported by:

  • Kingdom of Belgium
  • ​Port of Antwerp
  • ​Flanders
  • ČSOB
  • Van Mieghem Logistics
  • ​Red Star Line Museum

Shattered Hopes. Postwar Czechoslovakia as a Crossroads of Jewish Life

From 26. 02. 2015 - 09:00 to 23. 08. 2015 - 18:00

Galerie Roberta Guttmanna, U Staré školy 3, Prague 1

​The defeat of Nazi Germany and the end of WWII in Europe put an end to the genocide of persons who, based on legislature effective in the territories controlled by Nazi Germany and its allies, were labelled as Jews or members of a "mixed race". Those of the survivors who originally came from the Czech lands gradually returned home to begin a new life. The new exhibition reveals lesser-known aspects of the history of the Czech lands after WWII related to the repatriation of the survivors of the death camps and the transfer of dozens of thousands of Jewish refugees via Czechoslovakia. The theme of the exhibition thus builds on the museum's previous project, "Orient in Bohemia? Jewish Refugees during the First World War".

Truth and Lies Filming in the Terezín Ghetto 1942-1945

From 29. 08. 2013 to 30. 03. 2014

Jewish Museum in Prague – Robert Guttmann Gallery
U Staré školy 3, Prague 1

Film was used by the Third Reich as a powerful tool for controlling public opinion. Two propaganda films were made about the Terezín ghetto during the war. On the basis of the latest findings, this exhibition – prepared by the Jewish Museum in Prague and the National Film Archive – charts the history behind both of these projects. It focuses on the people who initiated the films and describes the conditions for the filming – many prisoners were forced to take part as actors, extras and even as members of the film crew.

GEORGES KARS (1880 – 1945) – Early Works

From 23. 02. 2012 to 17. 06. 2012

Open daily (apart from Saturday and Jewish holidays)
From 23 March, 9 a.m. – 4.30 p.m.

Robert Guttmann Gallery, U Staré školy 3, Praha 1

Georges Kars (1880–1945) is one of the members of the first generation of Czech modern artists whose work is still not sufficiently well-known or appreciated. These artists sought a new means of expression as well as international recognition, which some of them managed to achieve. Unlike his contemporaries, Kars did not attend the Prague Academy, nor did he take part in their first exhibitions. He found his second home in Paris, which was the centre of the international art world in the first half of the 20th century.
