Jewish Life and Everyday Life in Germany

2021 celebrates 1700 years of “Jewish Life in Germany”. With material from its own collections, the Deutsches Historisches Museum takes this anniversary as the occasion to show that Jewish life in Germany has a long and varied history. From the earliest time on, Jewish culture stamped its mark on everyday German life and still does today. Three department heads of DHM collections, each starting with a selected object, describe aspects of Jewish-German life from the Middle Ages to the present day.
