Dr. Stanley Burns as Speaker - The Stanley B Burns, MD Jewish Historic Photograph Collection 1850-1950

7:30 p.m. Service followed by Speaker


Photographic Judaica from The Burns Collection & Archive

Dr. Stanley B. Burns will present a selection of photographs from his historic Judaica photograph collection. Many of these images have never been exhibited or published before. The emphasis of the lecture is on life in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries in Eastern Europe, Western Europe, and Palestine. These images show everyday life, religion, traditional ceremonies, synagogues, and organizations, including Zionist and self-help groups, as well as a discussion of mensur in Germany and Austria. Early photographs of the creation of Israel incorporate images of the voyage of the Irgun blockade runner the Ben Hecht in 1947. The development of Israel 1946-1960, Jews in the military, Jewish medicine, and the lives of notable mid-nineteenth century Jewish Americans will also be explored. Unique albums of soldiers include the Israeli Wars, as well as unseen albums from German soldiers in WWII. Dr. Burns will also present his own artworks, which relate to his study of the holocaust and the actions of the Politzei. These critically acclaimed enhanced word-images have been exhibited at several galleries.
