Experience 2000 years of Jewish history at the Judisches museum, located in central Berlin just 10 minutes from Check point Charlie
. The permanent exhibition focuses on two millennia of German Jewish history through well known historical events, and explores Germany as a place of refuge for thousands upon thousands of Jews from Eastern Europe. At the museum you get an insight in to what life was like for Jewish families and the torture they had to endure at times, all through the eyes of the Jews themselves. Millions of tourists have visited this architectural gem since its opening in 2001 to learn more about the rich history and contribution the Jews brought to German culture over the years. The museum showcases information dating all the way back to the Middle Ages through virtual and multimedia exhibitions, as well as many other formats.
Visit this amazing museum and experience what Jewish life was like before the horrific Nazi era. Parts of the exhibition really hits you emotionally, something drastically different from all your run of the mill museums. As well as the spectacular design of the museum, world famous artists were asked to contribute some of their work to fit in with the Jewish theme of the museum. Some excellent works are Lewandowsky's Gallery of the Missing which consists of remarkable black glass sculptures, and the Shalechet installation which is a dramatic display of roughly cut round iron faces whose open mouths and empty eye sockets seem to scream silently in pain. These haunting pieces really capture the emotion in some areas of the exhibition. The museum often holds events such as readings, lectures, dance and music events so keep an eye on this year's events calendar. The museum is conveniently located near The Berlin Wall
