Time & Location
About the Event
A World Beyond: Jewish Cemeteries in Turkey 1583-1990 is an online database of more than 61,000 Jewish tombstones in Turkey, including photographs, transcriptions, and descriptions. The result of decades of work, this incredible repository is an essential resource for anyone researching Ottoman Jewry. The story behind the website is also an inspiring tale of scholarly persistence and a lesson about the importance of preserving primary sources.
This program will include a video presentation by Dr. Minna Rozen, followed by a question and answer session with Dr. Rozen about the project and the website.
