See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A Jewish Museum Association, whose aim is to increase the general interest in Jewish art and culture, to conserve documents of Jewish culture of the past and present and to place them at the disposal of the general public as well as of the students of all the world, was recently founded here.

As a nucleus for such a Jewish museum, the association already has the collection of Albert Wolf, one of the best known collectors of Jewish cultural documents, which he presented twenty-five years ago to the Jewish community of Berlin. The collection contains excavated objects from Palestine, Jewish coins and medals, portraits, miniatures, caricatures, photographs, etchings, etc. The association plans to create in Berlin the best equipped and most noteworthy Jewish museum in the world.
