Eighteen Artifacts Exhibit - The Breman Museum

Overview

This exhibition explores the history of Jews in Atlanta through artifacts, images, and oral histories. The story of Jewish Atlanta began as it did in many other Southern towns, but its narrative would take dramatic turns as Atlanta became a stage for regional, national, and international events over the next 170 years. Jews played a role in every significant event in Atlanta‚Äôs history, and in many cases Jewish men and women were instrumental in creating essential social, business, and educational organizations. By showcasing important artifacts representing major turning points in this story, we hope all who visit will leave with a sense of the significant ways the Jewish community has shaped the city of Atlanta. As visitors encounter these Eighteen Artifacts they are encouraged to consider and share their own connections to the selected people, places, or events of Atlanta Jewish history.

For more information on this museum exhibit, or any of our other meticulously-curated exhibits, including Holocaust artifacts and survival stories, please contact Aaron Berger, Executive Director, at aberger@thebreman.org or 404.870.1861.
