JDC Archives Featured in Just-Opened “1917” Exhibit

NOW – December 29, 2017

The JDC Archives is honored to have 15 archival works on display in a new exhibit, “1917: How One Year Changed the World” at the National Museum of American Jewish History (NMAJH) in Philadelphia. The exhibit explores three pivotal events that took place in 1917— America’s entry into World War I, the Bolshevik Revolution, and the issuing of the Balfour Declaration—and the impact of these developments on America’s global standing and, more specifically, on American Jewry.

“1917” runs through July 16, 2017 in Philadelphia and will then be on view at the American Jewish Historical Society in New York from September 1 – December 29, 2017.
