A restored room where the Sarajevo Haggadah (Jewish manuscript codex that was created in the second half of the 14th century in the northern part of Spain) is exhibited, was officially opened in the National Museum of BiH.

“We introduced a permanent terms and visitors will now be able to take a look at Haggadah twice a week, on Tuesday and Thursday, as well as every first Saturday in the month, in the period from 12 PM to 1 PM,” said the director of the National Museum of BiH, Mirsad Sijaric.

He noted that a large progress has been made and that the level of protection of Haggadah from light, temperature change and humidity was increased, as well as fire or theft. Moreover, the new system of book presentation will decrease the need for frequent manual manipulation, which further contributes to its protection.

The project was financed by the Embassy of the Republic of France in BiH, in co-operation with UNESCO.

“The Sarajevo Haggadah was declared as a mobile national monument of BiH back in 2003, and it was enrolled in the UNESCO World Heritage List last year, which is dedicated to the mobile cultural heritage of the world. All of this contributes to modernization and better working conditions of the National Museum of BiH,” stated Osmanovic.

France, UNESCO and the National Museum of BiH have improved the presentation of the content of Haggadah as well.

A copy of Haggadah will be made together with a new study that will reveal all the unknown details, and a large screen setting will allow visitors to take a look at Haggadah’s pages virtually, thanks to the UNESCO funds.
