International exhibition on Jewish Mathematicians in German-Speaking Academic Culture to open in Israel

The exhibition "Transcending Tradition" explores the working lives and activities of Jewish mathematicians in German-speaking countries during the period between the legal and political emancipation of the Jews in the 19th century and their persecution in Nazi Germany. It highlights the important role Jewish mathematicians played in all areas of mathematical culture during the German Empire and the Weimar Republic, and recalls their emigration, flight or death after 1933.
On 14 November 2011 the exhibition will be opened in Beit Hatfutsot - The Museum of the Jewish People at Tel Aviv University, one of the most important museums for Jewish history worldwide. The museum will also host the International Conference Trends and Perspectives in Mathematics which will take place on the 14-15 november 2011.
