Abrams, The Jewish Journey

FORTHCOMING SOON: New book shines spotlight on Ashmolean's Jewish treasures (Andrew Ffrench, The Oxford Mail).
A NEW book is to shine a spotlight on 22 little-known treasures at Oxford's Ashmolean Museum, revealing the 4,000-year history of the Jewish people.


They range from a 2000-year-old Dead Sea Scroll jar, to be displayed by the museum next month for the very first time since its purchase in 1952, to a forged English banknote made by Jewish prisoners in a Nazi concentration camp.


The Jewish Journey: 4,000 Years in 22 Objects is being published by the Ashmolean Museum on Tuesday, October 17, priced £15.
