“Hope is on the Next Page” – 100 Years of the Library of the Jewish Museum in Prague

Catalogue for the exhibition of the same name at the Robert Guttmann Gallery – the first detailed look at the history of the Library of the Jewish Museum in Prague, which is now a fully functional and modern institution with a comprehensive collection of Judaica and Hebraica from Bohemia and Moravia. This publication deals with the founding and development of the museum’s book collection, the wartime Central Jewish Museum and the library’s activities after the war, during the existence of the State Jewish Museum and through to the present. In addition, it features the pre-war Library of the Prague Jewish Religious Community and the fate of the Central Library in Terezín. There are also profiles of three figures who were closely connected with the fate of the museum and the library – S. H. Lieben, T. Jakobovits and O. Muneles. Richly illustrated, this catalogue presents previously unpublished archive documents, which are complemented by the lively reminiscences of contemporaries. Editor: Michal Bušek.
