Jewish Museum Berlin

  • Berlin, Germany

Last updated: 23 April, 2024

Set in a zinc-clad fortress depicting a shattered star of David, the Jewish Museum tells the story of Germany through the eyes of its Jewish Minority.

It traces 1,500 years of history, starting with medieval settlements along the Rhine, and concluding with the mass migration to Germany of 200,000 Jews from the former Soviet Union.

It offers an engrossing, if often sobering, perspective of the development of the German nation.
