Society for the Promotion of the Culture and History of the Jews of Bamberg
On 11 March, the journalist, photographer and film maker Jim G. Tobias talked about the Jewish Displaced Persons camps in Franconia, under the title Temporary residence in the land of the perpetrators.
The event was arranged in conjunction and with the support of the Association of the Persecutees of the Nazi Regime/and Anti-Fascists. Mr. Tobias also showed his film, Forgotten Children of Strüth - a Jewish orphanage in Franconia, which received a prize from the local Broadcasting station.
A benefit concert for the new
Synagogue was arranged by the Society and took place on 29 April in the
large hall of the Savings Bank in the Lange Strasse.
The musicians who performed in an almost full house were Ya’akov Rubinstein, alternate leader of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, Marcos Pawlik, Karlheinz Busch and Rafael Lambacher. They played works by Alfred Schnitke, Josef Dorfman, Felix Mendelsohn and Gustav Mahler.
On 5 July Dror (Thomas) Schindler MA, a member of the Community, gave a talk to a good-sized audience on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the death of Theodor Herzl.
On 13 December the journalist and
lyricist Dr. Gerhard Kraus, another member of the Community, talked about
Maimonides on the 800th anniversary of his death. The title of Kraus’s
talk was A sensible Faith? He showed why Maimonides was not
universally approved of by all Jews: because he tried to interpret
traditional Judaism in line with Aristotelian rationalistic theology, and
why the Influence of Maimonides persists to this day not only in Judaism,
but also in Christian religious philosophy.
The Society was also involved through its Vice-President Dr.med. Y.A. Deusel, Cantor Martin Rudolph and the Community Choir in a concert on 21 November as part of the Symposium arranged by the University of Bamberg (see below).
