Another Country

Jewish in the GDR – Exhibition Preview

With the cultural history exhibition Another Country, the Jewish Museum Berlin will turn its attention to Jewish experiences in East Germany – navigating what it means to live as a Jew in an officially anti-fascist society and aspiring socialist utopia – and thus expose an often invisible side of divided Germany’s postwar history. Through interviews, everyday objects, art, literature, and film, the exhibition will tell the story of Jewish life in the GDR, raising questions about self-definitions and self-identifications.

8 Sep 2023 to 14 Jan 2024
