AEJM Curators visit the MST

The Memorial Scrolls Trust was privileged to be part of the London 2015 itinerary for the Association of European Jewish Museum's Advanced Curatorial Programme. At the invitation of Joanne Rosenthal from the Jewish Museum of London, 24 people from 14* countries learned about the work of the MST from Evelyn Friedlander and Rabbi Ariel J Friedlander. They were then able to examine a selection of binders from the MST collection. Earlier in the day they had looked at some torah wimpels in the Victoria & Albert Museum, and were able to compare and contrast the two collections. The visit concluded with a trip upstairs to see the wall of torahs and the museum whence the binders had come.
(* the 14 countries were Austria, Crimea, England, France, Germany, Greece, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Switzerland and Turkey)
