SLA-Georgia & SGA Networking Night & Tour at the Breman Museum April 10th

Join SLA-Georgia and SGA as we explore the Breman Museum’s new exhibition on display from the National Archives and Records Administration, Discovery and Recovery: Preserving Iraqi Jewish Heritage.

The exhibition details the dramatic recovery of historic materials relating to the Jewish community in Iraq. Recovered from a flooded basement in Saddam Hussein’s intelligence headquarters, these materials have been painstakingly preserved by the National Archives. This exhibition tells the remarkable story of the Iraqi Jewish experience and provides a vivid and unparalleled record of Baghdad’s Jewish communal life from the end of the Ottoman era to the early 1970s. In both English and Arabic, the 2,000 square foot exhibition features 23 recovered original artifacts and a “behind the scenes” video of the preservation process. Participants will also get a unique behind-the-scenes tour of the museum’s library and archives by Jeremy Katz, Archives Director of the Cuba Family Archives for Southern Jewish History at the Breman Museum.

Starting at 6:00pm, we’ll have time for food and networking with a selection of Middle Eastern cuisine from Dolce Catering. Exhibition and archives tours will begin at 6:30pm.
