An approximately 40-metre-long walkway runs through the After 1945 epochal room. Restitution and “reparations,” the triangular relationship between Germany, Israel, and Jews in Germany, the waves of Jewish migration to and from Germany are the dominant themes, as well as Russian-speaking immigration from 1990 onwards.

In a final chorus, Jews speak on 21 monitors about being Jewish in Germany – the images and original soundtracks form a polyphonic chord of Jewish life today.

Interactions with the exhibition allow room for individual exploration of the subject and space for group discussions.
