Study Area

In addition to the three exhibition levels, other spaces are available to our visitors where they can expand their knowledge. The Study Area on the first exhibition level is one of these.

The Study Area is a space equipped with variable showcases that make it possible to stage small, specialist exhibitons, thus making an additional contribution to the discourse on current issues related to Jewish cultural history. Items from our continuously growing collection can also be displayed here in detail on an intimate scale.

Spitzenhaus Rosa Klauber 

An Exhibition in the Study Area at the Jewish Museum Munich

The “Spitzenhaus Rosa Klauber” lace shop at Theatinerstrasse 35, “Purveyors to the Royal Court of Bavaria,” was one of the best addresses for interior fittings and lingerie in Munich. Rosa Klauber (1820–1901), a market trader from Bohemia, successfully rose in Munich society from her beginnings on “Jews’ Row” at the “Auer Dult” market. 

In the 1920s, her grandsons opened a lingerie factory at Dachauer Strasse 112 in which Kurt Landauer, the long-standing president of FC Bayern, was employed as a clerk between 1935 and November 1938. "In 1938, Rosa Klauber's grandchildren had to abandon her legacy and flee Nazi Germany.

The exhibition in the Study Area examines the history of the lace company and the Klauber family. In addition to documents and photographs of the now forgotten business in Munich, laces from the current product range in New York can also be seen.
