The Jewish Response to National Socialism
Tour of the Permanent Exhibition for School Groups
This guided tour for students aged 14 to 18 focuses on the responses of German Jews to their disenfranchisement and persecution under the National Socialist regime in the context of the Nazis' policy of persecution.
In the very first months after the Nazis took power in 1933, they launched anti-Jewish initiatives that threatened the social and economic existence of German Jews. The increasing exclusion of Jews from society was followed by their forced displacement and then, starting in 1941, the systematic murder of European Jewry.
Personal documents and testimonies give evidence to German Jews' varying reactions to Nazi policies.
The First World War veteran Richard Stern pinned his Iron Cross medal to his chest during the April Boycott of 1933. The student Lilli Cassel learned foreign languages and emigrated in 1938. Herbert Baum joined forces with others who shared his political views.
