The JMB Book

As a Souvenir and to Read at Home

This richly illustrated JMB book has you strolling through the museum grounds, gaining insights into Daniel Libeskind’s architecture, and taking a tour of the 3,500 m2 core exhibition entitled Jewish Life in Germany: Past & Present.

In 14 chapters, you can relive, reread, and deepen your experience of the exhibition tour.

Plans of the museum and the core exhibition provide orientation, and chapters on the children's world ANOHA, our collections and programs inform about our diverse offerings.

With funding provided by the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media on the basis of a resolution by the German Bundestag.
