The Jewish Historical Society of Greater Washington (AASLH Member since 1990) is pleased to introduce our new curator, Christiane Bauer.
Christiane’s most recent work experience was at the Sprengel Museum in Hanover, Germany where she worked as a provenance researcher. Prior to that, she worked at the Jewish Museum Berlin for seven years in a variety of curatorial and exhibition-related positions. She is fluent in German and English and has basic knowledge of both Hebrew and Yiddish.
Christiane holds a BA and MA in German History and Jewish Studies from the Free University of Berlin and is currently enrolled in a PhD program in American history at Ludwig Maximilians University Munich and University of Kassel, Germany. Her dissertation project focuses on post-war German American identity; for her research, she spent 10 months traveling throughout the U.S. and conducted more than 60 oral history interviews.
Christiane recently moved to Washington, D.C. from Germany and is very excited and honored to join our team.
