Beyond the Pale. The History of Jews in Russia
The purpose of the site is to convey the great danger posed by intolerance and prejudice, by showing the anti-Jewish myths that accumulated through the centuries, and the discrimination and isolation that led to the Holocaust. The exhibition consists of archive photographs, drawings, pictures and documents, accompanied by brief notes. The exhibition is easy to navigate. The material is divided into subject blocks: The Middle Ages, The Development of Modern Anti-Semitism, Jews in the Russian Empire, Jews in the Soviet Union, nazism and the Holocaust, 1941 to the Present, and Democracy and Minority Rights. Particularly worth attention is some rarely presented material: propaganda posters, caricatures and medieval frescos.
