  • Jews in Berlin

    1938 to 1945

    The Exhibition presents the history of Berlin’s 55,000 Jews from 1938 until 1945: from gradual disenfranchisement to almost total annihilation.


    The names of all 55,000 Berlin’s Jews are written on this screen.

    The names of the ten percent who survived are printed in boldface. A glance gives an impression of the proportion between the number of Jews killed and the very few who survived.
