The exhibits of AMTH travel to Greece
“Stone Routes – Stories of Stone: Jewish Inscriptions in Greece”
Duration of the exhibition.
The temporary exhibition entitled “Stone Routes – Stories in Stone: Jewish Inscriptions in Greece” is co-organized by the Jewish Museum of Greece and the Epigraphic Museum of Greece.
The exhibition, which is hosted by both museums, presents archaeological and historical evidence of the presence of the Jews in Greece, one of the oldest religious and cultural communities in Europe, while also highlighting the country’s multicultural past.
The exhibits in the temporary exhibition, dating from the late 4th century BC to the 17th century AD, are also part of the history of the ancient Greeks and the history of the ancient Greek culture. They come mainly from the permanent collections of the two museums, from the archaeological museums of Attica and the Region (Archaeological Museums of Heraklion and Thessaloniki, the Archaeological Museums of Eastern Attica, Kavala – Thassos, Cyclades, Corinth, Larissa, Magnesia, Pella, Athens City, Chania) and from the Historical Museum of Crete.
The exhibition is supported by the Ministry of Culture and Sports, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany and the German-German Fund for the Future.
