To Stay or Go? Biographical Learning and Creative Storytelling

Student Workshop on the Experiences of German Jews during the Nazi eras and the Topic of Exile

This workshop is about the situation that German Jews faced during the Nazi era and begins by exploring the axes of the Libeskind building.

Deprived of their livelihoods, excluded from society, and treated like second-class citizens, many German Jews fled their homeland in the 1930s.

Historical documents from the museum’s Archive and graphic novels such as The Boxer recount the obstacles of emigrating from Nazi Germany. Taking a theater-education approach, the workshop participants investigate Daniel Libeskind’s architecture, the Garden of Exile, and objects from the collection and work biographically on the topic of exile.
