The exhibition, titled "Vienna in Tel Aviv," will see the silhouettes of renowned Viennese Jews who lived in the 19th and 20th centuries lining the colonnade at the Cameri Theater for several weeks. Among those being honored are Zionist founder Theodor Herzl, psychiatric pioneer Sigmund Freud, composer and conductor Gustav Mahler, playwright and author Arthur Schnitzler, philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein and composer Arnold Schoenberg.
