Afterlives: Recovering the Lost Stories of Looted Art

Online Workshop for Educators


Thursday, December 2, 2021
5 – 7 pm

Join us for an online workshop that explores the exhibition Afterlives: Recovering the Lost Stories of Looted Art, currently on view at the Museum through January 9, 2022. The exhibition includes objects looted from Jewish collections during the World War II, including works by such renowned artists as Paul Cézanne, Marc Chagall, Paul Klee, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso, and Camille Pissarro, as well as rare examples of Jewish ceremonial objects from destroyed synagogues.

Sam Sackeroff, Lerman-Neubauer Assistant Curator, will provide insight into the timelines of individual objects as they passed through collections and storage depots before, during, and after the war.  Following the talk, a Jewish Museum educator will facilitate activities and a discussion of select works of art in the exhibition.

New York State Educators may receive 2 CTLE hours.

A Zoom link will be sent with email confirmation. If you do not receive your email confirmation within ten minutes, please check your spam folder and mark the email as "not spam."

Please register by December 1, 2021

Program fee: $10. 

A limited number of spaces are available for teachers of self-contained special education classes and special education teachers in ICT classes to register free of charge by emailing [email protected].

Professional development workshops are made possible with endowment support from the Gershon Kekst Family.
