Events at Carnegie Library Of Pittsburgh (Squirrel Hill) Uncovering Hidden Histories Of Jews & Muslims
Carnegie Library Of Pittsburgh (Squirrel Hill)
[ venue info
Michal Friedman, a Carnegie Mellon University professor, discusses the lesser known intersection of the histories of Jews and Muslims in medieval Spain and modern Europe before 1948.
At the heart of the discussion is the fascinating story of the hiding of the sacred manuscript "Sarajevo Haggadah" and the saving of Jews by a Muslim in Sarajevo during the Second World War, a story recently popularized by Geraldine Brooks in her novel "People Of The Book."
