Guided tour (in German)

Once a month, we invite people with dementia and an accompanying person for a special visit to the museum to look at selected photographs from our family collection together. In the pictures we encounter Jewish families with whom we experience first days at school, wedding celebrations, and seaside holidays. Objects to feel and musical accents create a sensual approach, bringing the photographs to life. On arrival, our special guests are welcomed with coffee with cookies – the relaxed atmosphere creates space for their own memories and stories to flow.

In cooperation with the Alzheimer Gesellschaft Berlin e.V. Selbsthilfe Demenz (Berlin Alzheimer Society)
