Open Day at the Academy

We begin the open day with the letters exchanged by Moses Mendelssohn and Fromet Gugenheim when they were engaged as a small tribute to those who lend their name to the new town square in front of the academy.

As a highlight of our book week "ManySided" we present current children’s and youth books that open up new perspectives on today’s cultural diversity. Readings and a workshop with the Helmi puppets also await you, as do the translator Myriam Halberstam and the author Aygen-Sibel Çelik among others.

"New German Stories" is the name of a new event series at the academy. To begin, the author Lena Gorelik – who comes from a Russian-Jewish immigrant family – describes her perspective of Germany and its integration debates.

The library shows items hidden in its collections including historical children’s books and rarities from the George Warburg collection of banned and burned books. Alongside treasures spanning three centuries, the archive will present family stories from Kreuzberg and Neukölln as well as documents on the situation of Jews in Germany in 1933.

Here, you can download the entire program of readings, tours, movies, presentations, and much more (in German):
