The Guerry Columns, a major work Georges Jeanclos (1933-1997), joined recently the mahJ’s collections thanks to an exceptional donation by the artist’s family of a full-scale terracotta study of the bronze monument erected in the hamlet of Guerry at Savigny-en-Septaine in the Cher. A poignant evocation of one of the crimes of the Shoah perpetrated on the French territory, this work constitutes a major enrichment of the mahJ’s contemporary collection.
Founded in Russia in 1880 to extricate Jews from misery through the promotion of handicrafts and agriculture, ORT (Organisation Reconstruction Travail) is today an international education and training network established in more than forty countries on five continents. In 2021, the organisation celebrates the centenary of its presence in France, where every year it now trains some 5,000 students and trainees.
On the grounds of new findings in its archives, the mahJ also traced back the role of this organisation in the creation of the Museum of Jewish Art (1948-1998) in the rue des Saules, Paris, of which the mahJ is the heir.
