Exhibition Event: The Library of Lost Books – Reloaded

July 9 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Part of our Library of Lost Books event series.

The Library of Lost Books team from the Leo Baeck Institutes in London and Jerusalem will host a roundtable discussion with students, teachers, and educators who have participated in the international citizen science project, Library of Lost Books, that seeks to gather information about the current whereabouts of a Nazi looted library.

In a conversation with pupils and students, the main audience of this endeavour, and with educators, librarians, and archivist, we want to gather insights into experiences from the rollout of our project in London. The aim is to critically evaluate our pioneering work and to develop best practices emanating from the collaboration with our ‘book detectives’ in the UK.

The roundtable will be chaired by Dr Irene Aue-Ben-David, director of the Leo Baeck Institute Jerusalem. It will open with an overview on the project’s recent activities in Germany, the Czech Republic, and in Israel by Bettina Farack, the senior researcher of the Library of Lost Books.

If you are a teacher, educator or student who is looking for insights into the practical side of our ground-breaking project and who would like to join our growing community of citizen scientists as an ambassador, we warmly invite you to join our conversation!
