Emancipation and Reform
Tour about German Jews in the Nineteenth Century for School Groups
In this guided tour, students ages 14 to 18 consider various notions of identity based on objects in the exhibition. They consider the attitudes of nineteenth-century Jews in German society. Some of them fought patriotically for the Fatherland while others such as Ferdinand Lassalle and Rosa Luxemburg became active in socialist movements.
Rising Social Status and Modern Antisemitism
During the nineteenth century, Jews' living conditions underwent a sea change. Their emancipation as citizens was completed and Jews were formally granted equal rights. A large part of the rural populace moved to the industrializing towns and cities. While Jews were rising in the ranks economically and socially, modern antisemitism emerged.
