Initiated by the European Association for the Preservation and Promotion of Jewish Culture and Heritage (AEPJ), the Parallel Traces is a cross-cutting, collaborative, cross-European project that aims to bridge this gap. By unearthing the traces of the Jewish cultural heritage in urban architecture and planning in Europe, it offers an original and rigorous perspective on the past, present and future of European Jewish history and encourages mutual understanding and respect among different cultures and modes of artistic expression.
Parallel Traces is co-funded by the European Union within the framework of the Creative Europe programme.
