Masaryk and the Holy Land // exhibition

27th November 2018 - 31st December 2018



In the spring of 1927, President Tomáš Garrigue Masaryk arrived in the Holy Land to visit the Yishuv - the Jews living in the Land of Israel. It was historically the first visit of the official head of state to Mandatory Palestine. The exhibition at the Cinematheque Jerusalem brings photographs from the first visit of the then head of state to the country and other Czech-Israeli stories. The exhibition is organized by the Czech Center in cooperation with Czech House Jerusalem, the Embassy of the Czech Republic, the Embassy of the Slovak Republic in Tel Aviv, and Cinematheque Jerusalem on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Czechoslovak Republic and the 70th anniversary of the state of Israel.
