How to Get to the Permanent Exhibition
Visitors enter the permanent exhibition via a staircase leading to the lower level, where an underground pathway connects the eighteenth-century baroque building to the new structure designed by Daniel Libeskind. Two buildings that look separate from the street have been combined to form a single museum complex.
The stairs downwards strike many as dark and convoluted. They lead to an area dedicated to remembering the persecution, displacement, and annihilation of the Jews of Europe. About his architecture, Daniel Libeskind says, “What is important is the experience you get from it. The interpretation is open.”
