hefez. Studies on Jewish History and Material Culture
The Dubnow Institute’s series »hefez. Studies on Jewish History and Material Culture« addresses artefacts in which a Jewish presence is made manifest. The individual volumes constitute microstudies focusing on libraries, archives, collections, estates, as well as pictorial, architectural, and textual testimonies that embody larger cultural contexts. Hailing primarily from the twentieth century, these artefacts reflect the flowering and decline of Jewish cultural centers from Vilnius and Warsaw through to North America and Palestine. The German-language volumes also appear in parallel editions in Hebrew.
