Judaica Bohemiae L - 2

A new issue of the journal Judaica Bohemiae (Vol. 50/2015, 2) came out at the end of December 2015. The opening paper, by Daniel Soukup and Lukáš Reitinger, explores in detail the mid-14th-century Krumlov picture codex Liber depictus. It looks afresh at the question of the origin of this historical manuscript and, for the first time, examines it from the perspective of research into Jewish topics. The study provides an in-depth analysis of the scenes depicting Jews and places them in a broader context. As such, it significantly contributes to research into the clothing customs of the Jewish community in medieval Ashkenaz, or more specifically in the Bohemian lands. On the basis of a study of hitherto unknown archival material, the following paper by Pavel Kocman offers completely new findings on the history of the Jewish community of Hustopeče from 1621–1651 and considerably adds to our knowledge of the life of Moravian Jews in the turbulent period of the Thirty Years' War. In the 'Documents' section, Andrea Jelínková explores the beginnings of the Brno Hebrew printing press and its production in the years 1754–1760. In the 'Reports' section, Iveta Cermanová provides information about the Jewish Museum in Prague's new exhibition Jews in the Bohemian Lands, 10th–18th Century at the Maisel Synagogue, and Martin Jelínek discusses the recent exhibition The Auschwitz Album, which was held at the Prague House of Photography in May–September 2015 and organized by the Jewish Museum in Prague in co-operation with the Prague City Gallery. The final section of the journal contains a review by Jan Láníček of Martin Wein's book A History of Czechs and Jews: A Slavic Jerusalem (Routledge 2015) and a review by Ilona Bažantová of Tomáš Jelínek's book Pojišťovny ve službách hákového kříže. Prosazování německých zájmů v protektorátním pojišťovnictví, arizace pojistek a mezinárodní odškodňování [Insurance Companies in the Service of the Swastika: The Promotion of German Interests in the Protectorate Insurance Sector, Aryanization of Insurance Policies and International Compensation] (Karolinum 2015). Published since 1965 by the Jewish Museum in Prague, Judaica Bohemiae focuses on Jewish history and culture in Bohemia, Moravia and the wider Central European area (the territory of the former Habsburg Monarchy). The texts are in English and German.
