This 1980 photograph shows Beit Hatfutsot just two years after it was opened. It is the Museum of the Jewish People on the campus of Tel-Aviv University. The idea was proposed by Nahum Goldman, who wanted to create a monument to the Jewish Diaspora. The name of the museum translates to Diaspora House. The museum is unique in that it has no artifacts or historical relics, but rather provides a chronology of jewish life during 2,500 years of Diaspora.
