News in brief

The Judaica Europeana network of heritage institutions is in its 7th year. The partners work together on making their digital collections widely accessible through the Europeana.eu platform.

Europeana is about making digital heritage usable in a reliable way for the mutual benefit of audiences, data partners and stakeholders. Its portal has been redesigned to better display the 52 million records it currently holds. Curated selections of images, texts and sounds showcase Europeana content on specific themes such as Music, History of Art and Europeana 1914-18.

Among our latest collections published in Europeana are books and periodicals from the Alliance Israélite Universelle, a portrait collection from the Hungarian Jewish Archives and the archival collection of the Ostrava community from the Jewish Museum in Prague.

FID Judaica

Congratulations to Judaica Europeana partners Dr Rachel Heuberger of Frankfurt University Library and Professor Kai Eckert of Stuttgart Media University on winning a million euro grant from the German Science Foundation (DFG) for a pioneering project in Jewish Studies and Linked Open Data.

FID Judaica will be an expert information service which will enrich the data from the Judaica collection of Frankfurt University Library by a process of linking with information published in the Semantic Web to provide wide-ranging contexts for Jewish resources. The project will build on the achievements of Judaica Europeana in integrating large-scale data and publishing in a Linked Open Data format, via JudaicaLink, some valuable reference works of Jewish heritage such as The YIVO Encyclopedia of Jews in Eastern Europe.

Jewish Museum in Budapest reopens

The Jewish Museum in Budapest reopened in April with a new exhibit marking its 100th anniversary. Jewish Heritage Europe reports 'The exhibition 100 Years – 100 Objects shows the development of the museum’s collection through one hundred objects. Each and every object displayed has its own individual and special story, but looking at them and interpreting them as a whole, we can get to know almost every layer of the history and culture of the Jews in Hungary.'
