During the chronological tour, a large space is dedicated to National Socialism and the time since the end of WWII. The exhibition alternates between historical periods and cultural insights. What is sacred in Judaism? Is there specific Jewish art? How do people practice Judaism in today’s society? Alongside the treasures of the museum’s collection including everyday objects and art, there are video and audio installations. There are also interactive stations that provide surprising insights.
