The Museum’s collections have, to a great extent, been built up thanks to gifts and donations. At present, the Museum holds a considerable collection of photographs, postcards, letters from the front, diplomas, certificates and so forth. This collection beautifully illustrates the daily life, sufferings and hopes of Jews from the late nineteenth to mid twentieth century.
Today, the main collection of the Museum comprises an important collection of Judaica, around thirty paintings by famous Russian and Jewish artists, over fifty posters from the late nineteenth to early twentieth century, the Akselrod family collection (graphics and oil paintings), photographs, various documents, unique donations and much more.
Each time an object is submitted to the Museum, an interview is recorded on camera. All documents and photographs donated are included in the Museum’s exhibitions and research projects. Where possible, they are put on display, and become scientific material for research works, books and scientific papers on the theme of the Jewish presence and participation in the history of the Russian Empire and USSR. We would be very grateful for any participation in this project.
