At the Crossroads: The Jewish Community of Corfu

Article publié le 9 September 2021

Digital exhibition created by the Jewish Museum of Greece, to frame the commemorative events organised by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany, on the occasion of the German Presidency of the IHRA.

The exhibition offers a brief historical overview of a distinct Jewish community that has thrived at the crossroads of East and West and shared in the turbulent history of such a beautiful host island. The passage through the narrow cantons, but also the coexistence of peoples with different languages, religions and cultures have influenced the daily life and traditions of the community, creating particular characteristics, customs and traditions and leaving their clear expression in the cultural, functional and architectural elements.
