Masaryk and the Holy Land

Small exhibition presents interesting photographs

Location: New Building of the National Museum, Vinohradská 1, 110 00, Praha 1

In the spring of 1927, President Tomas G. Masaryk arrived in the Holy Land to visit the Yishuv - the Jews living in the Land of Israel. It was historically the first visit of the official head of state to the Mandatory Palestine.

Although Masaryk declared it to be a private visit, and for security reasons he travelled secretly and under an assumed name, local intelligentsia, politicians, and ordinary people attached great importance to it.

From a symbolic point of view, it was an expression of support and a unique event. It was a journey that historians may have strangely disregarded but one that the people of Israel have never forgotten. For them it was and is "an unforgettable visit".

The enthusiasm of the inhabitants of the times can be seen in the photographs presented here, in many cases ones that have never been published before.

This accompanying exhibition to the exhibition Masaryk as a Phenomenon was created at the initiative of the Embassy of the State of Israel in the Czech Republic.
