It has three main focuses:

  • The architecture of the museum building, which draws its symbolic power from its close reference to National Socialism. This focus includes a visit to the Axes in the museum basement and Menashe Kadishman’s artwork Schalechet (Fallen Leaves).
  • Insights into the core exhibition Jewish Life in Germany: Past and Present. In addition to historical epochs, it covers the Jewish themes Torah and the commandments or religion and secularism.
  • The role of the Jewish Museum Berlin for the German self-image – the tour addresses this theme at an appropriate point by means of selected exhibits.

The guides can weight topics flexibly according to the group’s interests and allow time for exchange.
