BETWEEN HAMBURG AND ISRAEL
The Joseph Carlebach-Institute was established in March 1992 in cooperation with the University of Hamburg. Following 30 years of the Institute's activity and in loving memory of the founder Prof. Dr. Miriam Gillis-Carlebach, we have compiled a collection of essential documents, publications and photos about the Institute's history.
JCI Archive collections were created by the Institute's founder Prof. Dr. Miriam Gillis-Carlebach, during about 50 years of her academic research and teaching activities. Holdings include a wide range of historical documents, letters, manuscripts, photographs, old prints, press clippings, and more.
