Co-organized by UNESCO and the Simon Wiesenthal Centre, the exhibition tells the history of the Jewish People in the Middle East, from biblical times to the present.
The exhibition is authored by Prof. Robert Wistrich of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and sponsored by the Permanent Delegations of Canada, Israel, Montenegro and the United States of America to UNESCO.

The Simon Wiesenthal Centre is an international Jewish human rights organization based in Los Angeles.
