Judaica from 33 communities around the world. Each community was represented by a group of items which demonstrated both the individuality of the local Jewish culture and the commonality of Jewish themes and objects throughout the world. Preface by William L. Gross. Three catalog essays: title essay (Felicitas Heimann-Jelinek), “Objects of Diaspora” (Eva Grabherr) and “About the Exhibition Design” (Martin Kohlbauer). The bulk of the catalog is devoted to images and brief histories of each individual community, and the objects chosen to represent them. 130 items.
