The A-Mazing Mendes Cohen

A little bit Forrest Gump, a little bit Indiana Jones, 100% real. Discover the most extraordinary Baltimorean you’ve never heard of! The Jewish Museum of Maryland and The Maryland Historical Society invite you on a journey to put together the puzzle of one man’s life. It’s a journey full of twists, turns, and missing clues.

Throughout history, Mendes Cohen was there.


At Ft. McHenry when the bombs were bursting in air; at the Supreme Court when states’ rights were at stake; in Paris when the people prepared the barricades; at the Vatican for the installation of a new pope; down the Nile to collect artifacts; in Jerusalem as the first American tourist; in Annapolis when arguments raged over fugitive slaves; on the board of the nation’s first railroad.
