The Jewish Museum of Venice believes that the sharing of stories builds a community. For 60 years now, we have done our best to be compelling narrators of Jewish history.

We are the guardians of an amazing cultural heritage where everyone can discover themselves in a millennial encounter with otherness.



Music from Terezin

Festival Viktor Ullmann is the first music festival in the world dedicated to Concentrationary Music – composed by deportees in concentration camps and ghettos – and to Degenerate Music – music that was forbidden in Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy as it was considered decadent, dangerous and contrary to racial canons imposed by the two regimes.
Playing this music means reviving the memory and the creative genius of these composers. It is also a way to understand the Holocaust from a new point of view.

Next 29th November 5.30 p.m Davide Casali, artistic director, will give a lesson about the music in Terezìn.
The lesson will be in italian.
