Description

An exhibition that traced the history of the “return visit” by immigrant Jews back to Eastern Europe. The phenomenon of the “return visit”, and how immigrants and their descendants have constructed an (often idealized) image of the Old World was examined in three different time periods: 1881 to World War I, Interwar, and Post-World War II.
