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.
- "Obedience. An Installation in 15 Rooms by Saskia Boddeke & Peter Greenaway" tells the biblical story of forefather Abraham, who is willing to obey God's command and sacrifice his son. The multimedia exhibition runs from 22 May to 15 November 2015.
- Our cabinet exhibition "In a Foreign Country" presents, in cooperation with the Berlin State Library, publications from the Jewish displaced persons camps in Germany (3 September – 15 December 2015).
