German Jews – Jewish Germans?
Free Downloadable Worksheets for Visiting the Museum
If you haven’t reserved a tour or workshop for your school group or would like to let your students explore the Jewish Museum Berlin themselves, we offer free worksheets (in German) to download. Depending on the subject, they are aimed at students aged 13 to 18.
Why do some Jews celebrate Christmas? Why weren’t German Jews very interested in Palestine and Zionism before 1933? And how did Jewish families live a hundred years ago? Students explore the permanent exhibition for themselves and get acquainted with Jewish life in Germany before the Nazi period.
In small groups of up to six, teenagers learn about Jewish history in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries and investigate these five topics in the permanent exhibition:
- Baptism (ages 13 and older)
- Family life in the nineteenth century (ages 13 and older),
- Jews as patriotic Germans (ages 15 and older),
- Zionism (ages 15 and older)
- Politics and Judaism (ages 15 and older).
The worksheets take roughly one hour to complete. All tasks are designed so that students can accomplish them without other aids or special prior knowledge of the information and objects in the exhibition.
Anytime during museum opening hours
Worksheets (in German) free to download, plus the price of the museum ticket (3 euros reduced)
We request an advance reservation.
Please bring the printed-out worksheets along to your museum visit.
Please note that the Learning Center has been closed since April 2017. Therefore, the students will be unable to complete some of the tasks.
