Audio Guide:
The Axes of Memory in the Libeskind Building

Discover the Libeskind Building with its slanted walls, sharp corners, and high vertical voids using our audio guide. The Axes in the lower level deal with the persecution and murder of Jews during the period of National Socialism. They also talk about those who escaped into exile and how life went on.

Hear from the architect Daniel Libeskind and listen in on conversations with eye-witnesses and museum staff. Discover the light and sound installation of Mischa Kuball and learn more about the Memory Void with the walk-in art installation by Menashe Kadishman.
