Sat, 10. May 2014, 15:30-16:30 The First Europeans. Habsburg and Other Jews – A World before 1914 Public guided tour for the Emsiana festival (in German)

Hundred years after the onset of World War I, the European Union faces a severe crisis. The Jewish Museum Hohenems looks back onto the world of the “Habsburg Jews” and their experiences, their transnational networks and their mobility, their hopes for a European federation and their illusions about the Habsburg multiethnic empire. The exhibition presents precious loans from museums and private collections in Europe and the US—and tells the story of merchants and carriers, inventions and white slavery, artists and salons, peddlers and scholars, spies and patriots.
