Dawn of the Modern Age – Jews in the German Empire and the Weimar Republic

Workshop for Students Aged 14 to 18

Working in small groups, students use exhibition objects to reconstruct the life stories of a wide range of Jews from the worlds of art, theater, science, business, and journalism. They include the potter Grete Loebenstein, a modern woman who was just as successful as an artist as she was as an entrepreneur.
