"It Was as Simple as That"
Student Workshop on Growing up Jewish in Germany after 1945
In this workshop students aged 14 to 18 form small groups and use audio stories to explore the lives of Jews presented in our exhibition.
What was it like to grow up in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland after 1945? We posed this question to eighteen well-known, less-known, religious, and not-so-religious Jews and recorded their answers. We also asked them for a photograph that shows an important event in their childhood or adolescence.
Stories about the Past with a Bearing on the Present
The photos date from 1947 to the early 1990s and capture contradictory moments in the interviewees’ lives: feelings of estrangement and belonging, escapes from daily routines, hopes, and dreams.
At the conclusion of the workshop the groups discuss their results and relate them to their own experiences.
