5 Dec-May. The Jewish Museum of Rome and the Museo di Scultura Antica Giovanni Barracco host Ludwig Pollak: Archeologo e mercante d’arte (Praga 1868 – Auschwitz 1943), an exhibition of antiques and archive material relating to the esteemed archaeologist and art dealer Ludwig Pollak. The exhibition marks the 150th anniversary of Pollak's birth, in Prague in 1868, as well as the 80th anniversary of Italy's racial laws, promulgated by the fascist regime to enforce racial discrimination, mainly against Italy's Jews. Pollak is best remembered for important archaeological finds, including his extraordinary discovery in 1906 of the missing Laocoön arm which he donated to the Vatican. However Pollak's celebrated career came to a tragic end on 16 October 1943 when he and his family were among the 1,023 Jews rounded up in Rome's Ghetto district and deported to Auschwitz concentration camp, where he perished. For exhibition details see Museo Barracco website.
