The academy of the Jewish Museum Berlin is expanding the scope of the museum activities by introducing a program about migration and diversity. Through different kinds of events - lectures, conferences, workshops, and panel discussions - the academy creates a platform for the discussion of Germany as an immigration country and the associated pluralization of society.
