Simon Wiesenthal Center exhibition on show in Japan E-mail
The Simon Wiesenthal Center held the Japanese première of its new exhibition: People. Book. Land. The 3,500 Year Relationship of the Jewish People With The Holy Land, at Yamano Beauty College in Yoyogi, Tokyo, in December.
The exhibition presents an historical, not political, narrative of the Jews’ 3,500-year relationship with the Holy Land, providing an insight into the principles that have guided them throughout this period.

Renowned historian Professor Robert Wistrich authored the exhibition, which also focuses on the universal and particular values that inspired the unique journey of the Jewish people throughout history and inspired Jews to retain an unbreakable, centuries-old bond with and love for their ancestral homeland.

The exhibition is part of the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s mandate that includes using its top-tier NGO status to educate the world about the lessons of the Nazi Holocaust, intergroup relations and tolerance, and standing up for the rights and dignity of people everywhere. The exhibition, the first under United Nations auspices that outlines the historical raison d’être for the UN vote to recognise a Jewish homeland in 1947: the remarkable fact that the Jewish people have an uninterrupted 3,500-year relationship with the Holy Land.

The exhibition was open to the public and sponsored by the governments of the US, Canada and Israel, and was co-sponsored by UNESCO.Please login or register to see the full article
