Marcus Ehrenpreis: unrequited love

Article publié le 9 September 2021

Lecture at the Jewish Museum in Stockholm

“You and I were born into Judaism. You when so many Jewish roads still seemed open, I when so many Jewish roads had been closed. You when there was so much to break, to make up for and to breathe new life into, I when so much Jewish life was wiped out and the question could be seriously asked whether Jewishness was still possible.”

This is how Göran Rosenberg begins his story about Marcus Ehrenpreis, chief rabbi in Stockholm between 1914 and 1948. A story of unfulfilled dreams, unrequited love and shattered possibilities. Göran Rosenberg is a journalist and author. He was previously editor-in-chief of Moderna Tider and is one of our sharpest social critics and debaters. Rabbi Marcus Ehrenpreis’ conversation on unrequited love is led by journalist, author and historian Henrik Berggren.

As the evening of the programme takes place during the Yom Kippur festival, the museum will not open until 18:00. The activities in the Jewish Museum programme are included in the museum entrance fee and do not need to be pre-booked. A warm welcome!
