The Preservation of Jewish Monuments in Eastern Europe

Hosted By: Orange County Jewish Community Scholar Program ("CSP")

Seventy-five years after the Holocaust, and thirty years after the fall of Communism, how is the Jewish past being preserved and presented in Eastern Europe? In these three illustrated lectures Dr. Samuel Gruber reviews efforts in Eastern Europe by government and private agencies, institutions, and organizations to document, protect, conserve, and maintain Jewish historic and religious sites, especially synagogues, cemeteries, and Holocaust-related sites.  In the decades since the fall of the Iron Curtain, the quantity and quality of this work keeps growing, as well as increased engagement Jewish and non-Jewish communities, and the interest of travelers from around the world.

Dr. Samuel Gruber

Dr. Samuel Gruber has been active in the documentation, protection, and preservation of this historic since 1990, when he organized the first countrywide surveys of Jewish heritage sites for the World Monuments Fund and the U.S. Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad, and organized the first international conference on the Future of Jewish Monuments.  That wok led to the restoration of many synagogues and cemeteries and the creation of new memorials at Holocaust-related sites. More recently, most such projects have been organized locally.  Dr. Gruber presently directs Gruber Heritage Global, a cultural resource consulting firm and is president of the not-for-profit International Survey of Jewish Monuments.  He lives in Syracuse, New York, where since 1994, he has taught art history and Jewish Studies at Syracuse University and is also Visiting Associate Professor of Jewish Studies at Cornell University.
