About the Jewish Museum
The Jewish Museum in Rendsburg - which will celebrate its 30-year anniversary this year - was one of the first Jewish museums to be founded in Germany after World War 2. The only location which comprehensively informs about the Jews’ history and culture in the north is in Schleswig-Holstein.
The permanent exhibition focuses on the history of the Jews in Schleswig-Holstein as well as the Jewish religion and identity. Additionally, the museum houses an exclusive collection of works from selected artists - from Max Liebermann via Felix Nussbaum, Ludwig Meidner and Anita Rée to Joseph Hebroni and Moissey Kogan.
With its special exhibitions and events, the museum repeatedly leaves its mark- also on a national federal scale - in social discourse, recently with the “Exodus Affair” in the area of the communication of history.
Museum, architectural monument, memorial place
The Jewish Museum in Rendsburg is the central location of Jewish history and culture in Schleswig-Holstein – and at the same time a location for intercultural exchange.
