Biographies of Jews in Munich
Young visitors and youths can investigate the lives of selected Jewish citizens from Munich in the permanent exhibition. Using objects on display as well as written and photographic material, their biographies can be traced and put in a historical context. Together we talk about how much freedom of choice there was at different moments in time and what that meant for Jews living in Munich.
