Jews 45/90
From Here and There - Survicors from Eastern Europe

Exhibition catalogue

The exhibition series Jews 45/90 highlights personal stories that began in Eastern Europe and found their continuation in Munich and the surrounding area. The first exhibition is dedicated to the history of Displaced Persons (DPs) in the immediate post-war period. Up until the end of the '40s, Germany - of all places - became a temporary home to tens of thousands of Jews who had survived the Shoah and to refugees from Eastern Europe. In this, the most comprehensive exhibition to be held to date on the everyday life, history and culture of Jewish Displaced Persons, the focus has been placed especially on the individual fates and the different living environments of DPs, whose stories of flight and migration have long been overshadowed by the Shoah.
In the essay section of the catalogue, the children of former Displaced Persons such as the authors Lily Brett and Savyon Liebrecht, reflect their own family histories inspired by the objects in the exhibition.
