Militärkasino (December 1915–1916)


Several thousand metal objects collected for the war effort by the Ministry of War whose artistic or historical value exceeded that of their materials. Rather than being melted down, these items were placed on exhibition and offered to Austrian museums for their collections (to which they were transferred only in 1924). The majority of Jewish exhibits were brass synagogue and Hanukkah lamps (see pp. 43–44, nos. 2489–2590, and pl. XXI). Many of them were acquired by the Jüdisches Museum Wien. Brief descriptions. 4,470 items.


Most of the items displayed in the Jüdisches Museum Wien prior to 1938 were acquired from this exhibition.
