In 2005, the Ottoman-Turkish Sephardic Cultural Research Center partnered with Centropa to document the oral history of Istanbul’s Sephardic community. The result was Jewish Witness to a Century, an exhibition of photos and memories that opened at the Schneidertemple Art Gallery as part of 2007’s European Day of Jewish Culture.
