Permanent Exhibition

Our historical permanent exhibition chooses an unusual perspective on the history of Germany and German-speaking territories. Two Millennia of German Jewish History lets the visitor see the Germany of the past and present through the eyes of the Jewish minority. This point of view presents well-known historical events with a new focus and greater complexity alongside the fates of individuals and families.

Special Exhibitions
  • The exhibition "The Creation of the World" shows medieval documents, artfully prepared wedding contracts, richly illustrated scrolls, illuminated manuscripts, and rare prints from the Braginsky Collection (4 April - 3 August 2014).
  • Our cabinet exhibition "The First World War in Jewish Memory" presents the everyday life of war – military documents, letters, photographs, diaries, medals, and private sketchbooks (from 3 July to 16 November 2014).
  • From 10 July 2014 to 11 January 2015 the museum will be showing the installation "bios [torah]" by the artist group robotlab which refers to the activity of Torah writing.
Rafael Roth Learning Center
