Exhibition MemoMap: the History of the Holocaust in Prague, Klementinum

03. 05. 2024

This year's Yom HaShoah also includes the exhibition MemoMap: the History of the Holocaust in Prague. It will be on display in the outdoor spaces of the Klementinum from Monday, May 6 (Yom HaShoah), until Sunday, May 19, 2024.

In 16 panels, the exhibition shows how the space of Prague was reduced, for those who were identified as Jews, in response to the Protectorate's issuance of anti-Jewish decrees. The orders and regulations led to the creation of invisible barriers that prevented contact between Jewish and non-Jewish residents of Prague even before Jews were called to transports and deported to concentration camps.

The exhibition presents specific incidents - events recorded in police reports for violations of anti-Jewish regulations, was designed to be understandable to the general public without the need for further interpretation, and at the same time served as an introduction to the MemoGIS application and presented a cross-section of what can be found in the application.
