geraubt und genutzt. Bücher von verfolgten und ermordeten Juden in Berliner Bibliotheken

Eine Ausstellung der Zentral- und Landesbibliothek und des Centrum Judaicum im Repräsentantensaal der Neuen Synagoge Berlin

vom 10. Mai bis 25. August 2013

In deutschen Bibliotheken befinden sich noch immer Bücher, die ihren Eigentümern während der NS-Herrschaft geraubt wurden.

Das Thema NS-Raubgut wird in der öffentlichen Diskussion meist nur mit Rückgaben von wertvollen Gemälden in Verbindung gebracht. Geraubte Bücher hingegen scheinen wertlos – für die Beraubten und deren Familien sind sie jedoch unersetzliche, ja unschätzbare wertvolle Erinnerungsstücke.

The German Emigration Center Bremerhaven: 27 August 2012 – 28 February 2013

Berlin/Bremerhaven, 12.07.2012 – Millions of girls and young women left Europe and their homes in the late 1890s and early 1900s. They journeyed from Hesse to California, from Russia to New York or from Galicia to Buenos Aires in the hope of improving their fortune and creating a new existence for themselves. For tens of thousands this path led to prostitution.


Moses Mendelssohn: Friends, Foes and Family

26/11/2012 – 07/04/2013

Moses Mendelssohn, known as the “German Philosopher” was a controversial personality in recent Jewish history over whom the opinions continue to differ.

Scholars of his day concerned about their reputation lost no opportunity to make Mendelssohn’s acquaintance or to correspond with him. Mendelssohn was admired as a universal scholar, who lived as an Orthodox Jew, yet strived to raise Jewish traditions to the level of the enlightened times. However the picture of Mendelssohn’s friends and supporters would not be complete without mentioning his staunch adversaries who, in terms of their motives and aims, could not be less contrary.  Using selected display items, the Centrum Judaicum exhibition throws light on Moses Mendelssohn’s fascinating personality as well as his impact. The exhibition not only presents Mendelssohn’s admirers in the bourgeoisie and aristocratic circles, but also considers the conflicting tendencies of his Jewish critics. These critics regarded him with contempt as the gravedigger of traditional Judaism, its identity and moral concepts.

Deals and Dealers – The Art Trade in Berlin 1933-1945

04/11/2011 – 07/31/2011

From April 10 to July 31, 2011, the Aktive Museum e.V. in Berlin presents the exhibition “Deals and Dealers” in cooperation with the Centrum Judaicum at the Neue Synagoge Berlin and through financial support from the Hauptstadtkulturfonds. This exhibition tells the story of art dealers in Berlin between 1933 and 1945.

More than 60 years after the end of the Nazi regime, the art trade of that time has still not been well-researched or documented. The “Reichshauptstadt” Berlin was the centre of the international art market during the “Golden Twenties” and Nazi policy had a direct influence on both art and the businessmen dealing in it.


In Search of a Lost Collection – The Berlin Jewish Museum (1933-1938)

09/10/2011 – 12/30/2011

On January 24, 1933 the Berlin Jewish Museum opened at Oranienburger Straße 31, next to the New Synagogue. It was the first Jewish Museum in the world to focus and exhibit not only on art and artifacts relating to Jewish history, but also works of modern Jewish art. Only one week later the National Socialists came to power, bringing about the brutal exclusion of the Jews from German culture and society. Despite adverse conditions, the Jewish Museum had an enormous effect on the Jewish community. In the five years that it was open, the museum held a series of important exhibitions that were unique in Germany at the time and built an extraordinary collection including works from Max Liebermann, Moritz Oppenheim, Lesser Ury and Marc Chagall. On November 10, 1938, the Berlin Jewish Museum was forcibly closed, and the entire museum inventory was confiscated.
