Endi Poskovic to Speak at Case Western Reserve University

Poskovic 1900s Sephardi couple from Sarajevo

On Wednesday, October 19, Stamps Professor Endi Poskovic will visit Case Western Reserve University’s Siegal Lifelong Learning Program to give a presentation entitled Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina: Where Sephardim and Ashkenazim Meet. This visual presentation draws on art, personal narrative and history to explore the Jewish experience in the city of Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina. There, Sephardic Jews from the Iberian Peninsula and Ashkenazi Jews of the Hapsburg Empire, came to live side by side with their Bosnian Christian and Muslim neighbors forming an identity and a way of life inseparable from the region.
