The Pilot: Jewish Digital Cultural Recovery Project

The goal of the JDCRP pilot project, The Fate of the Adolphe Schloss Collection, is to test the feasibility of building a comprehensive database containing historical-archival information about Jewish-owned cultural and artistic objects that were forcibly displaced between 1933 and 1945. This experimental project proposes a different approach than previous efforts and aims to enrich data searches, provide deeper historical context, and explore how new technologies and research methodologies can enhance users’ experiences.
