The doors represent ‘Hebrew Migration from Many Lands’, ‘Arrival in the Land of Peace and Prosperity’ and ‘Rebecca at the Well’. The bas-relief sculpture over the main entrance to the Gallery was carved by his wife Eva Meyerowitz, the famed scholar of West African art.

    Between 1679 and 1811, this windowless building was filled to the brim with slaves – many of them women. The ‘lodge’ was also used as a prison, mental asylum and unofficial brothel.
