PopUp Exhibition | Susanna Zaraysky on Ladino in Sarajevo

Oct 21, 2015 @ 5:00 am - 6:00 am


Filmmaker Susanna Zaraysky co-directed the film, Saved by Language, which tells the story of Moris Albahari, a Sephardic Jew from Sarajevo whose knowledge of Ladino helped him survive the Holocaust. Susanna’s work aims to contextualize Ladino as an endangered Jewish language.

The PopUp Exhibition will feature objects from The Magnes Collection including a Chumash (Pentateuch) in Spanish printed in Istanbul in 1873 and a Hebrew Alphabet Primer printed in Venice for Spanish-speaking Jews.


About the PopUp Exhibition Series

Each week, UC Berkeley faculty and students, visiting artists and other notable guests present brief lectures focused on selected treasures from the The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life. One speaker and one object at the time, these “flash” exhibitions include the opportunity to view the art and artifacts discussed intimately and up close.

Bring your own lunch, enjoy complimentary refreshments, and take part in an exciting learning program, free and open to the public. Close-up view of collections included.
