Jewish Museum in Prague


The History of the Jews in Bohemia and Moravia

Part I: From the First Settlements until Emancipation
A guide to the historic exhibition housed in the Maisel Synagogue in Prague

Published in English, this brand new catalogue is centred around the individual topics of the Maisel exhibition and is accompanied by 105 reproductions of the rarest exhibits, some of which are being featured for the first time in print, including the actual signature
of Rabbi Loew (the Maharal). The main body of text is written by Dr. Alexandr Putík and Olga Sixtová. This book follows on from previous exhibition guides published by the Museum, including Jewish Customs and Traditions (accompanying the exhibition in the Klausen Synagogue and Ceremonial Hall) and History of the Jews in Bohemia and Moravia, Part II - From Emancipation to the Present (accompanying the exhibition in the Spanish Synagogue).
