Concept and design

The architecture of the New Synagogue is once again visible and now filled with a wealth of narration and film. The interviews that were specially recorded for this exhibition bring the deeply moving history of the Jews to life. These stories, told from many different perspectives and from different sources, have been compiled using a variety of media. Large projections on the walls, historic film, personal stories on touch screens and an original presentation of typical objects outline the most important developments in three periods: the pre-war period, the Second World War and the period after the war up to the present day. Different themes can be found on each of fourteen screens comprising an interview, old film clips, a key object, photos and documents. History is made tangible.
