Jewish Museum Berlin

Though there was already a Jewish Museum in Berlin founded in 1933, the idea for a new one originated in the Western part of Berlin, years before the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989.

Opened in 2001, the largest Jewish museum in Europe consists of three buildings, one of them in Baroque style, and two newer ones in deconstructivist-style, designed by Libeskind, and they’re all connected underground. The museum exhibits the social, political and cultural history of the Jews in Germany from the 4th century to the present days, including the repercussions of the Holocaust.

The entrance is made through the Baroque building of the Kollegienhaus and then the visit descends to the dramatic Entry Void. This descent leads to three underground axial routes, the first leading to a dead end, the Holocaust Tower. The second one leads to the outside of the building to the Garde of Exile and Emigration, a reminder of those who had to leave Berlin. The third and longest, traces a path to the Stair of Continuity, then up to the exhibition spaces of the museum.
