"False Testimony" Exhibition Open Through Dec. 15 at OSA’s Galeria Centralis

The subject of the “False Testimony” exhibition is the Tiszaeszlar Trial of 1883. Following the disappearance of 14-year-old Eszter Solymosi on April 1, 1882, in the Hungarian village of Tiszaeszlar, local rumors and suspicions of Jewish ritual murder led to a high-profile murder case in the summer of 1883. Relying heavily on forensic medicine, the prosecution’s case was not proved against the 14 male Jewish defendants, who were proclaimed not guilty on August 3. The photographs, videos, and objects in the exhibition examine individual and collective memory and identity. A series of conversations and lectures will also be held in connection with the exhibition. For more information, see http://www.osaarchivum.org/events/False-Testimony-Hajnal-N%C3%A9meth-and....
