The Jewish Museum Berlin will be closed for renovation until further notice. Regrettably, the corona pandemic has caused delays in the construction of the new exhibition. We will inform you of the opening date as soon as possible.

Catastrophy

Guided Tour

This tour presents the core exhibition with a focus on the historical epoch room Catastrophe. An introduction to the museum building’s iconic architecture is part of this exhibition tour.

962 decrees were issued against Jews from 1933 onwards. Printed on large flags suspended from the ceiling, they form an installation that makes the extent, completeness, and perfidy of the Nazi regime’s bureaucratically decreed Antisemitism spatially perceptible. Opposite it is a map projection that spatially and temporally pinpoints violent attacks on Jewish people, shops, and community facilities, thus showing another central aspect of persecution.

Exhibits from our family collections illustrate attempts to flee Germany. Striking objects such as “Judensterne” (Jewish Stars), passport photos of Jewish forced laborers from the Berlin firm Ehrich & Graetz, and personal documents allow insights into biographies and raise questions: Why was the escape not always successful? How did Jewish resistance make itself known?

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