Petit Futé's opinion on JÜDISCHES MUSEUM

Vintage plate 2020

An interactive and modern museum dedicated to German-Jewish history and a large memorial that invites to meditation.

The Jüdiches Museum - Jewish Museum - is a must in reunited Berlin. First of all, the building itself is an architectural curiosity. Many people see the building designed by the architect Daniel Libeskind as a Star of David, whose branches are said to have been dismembered, disjointed. The name of the project is "Between the Lines", and it is true that few buildings say so much with so few words.

A large part of the museum in the basement is a memorial, a sort of labyrinth where the walls are leaning and the floor is sloping. The memorial is built around three axes: Exile, Holocaust and Continuity. The axes lead to different places that invite contemplation, such as the icy Holocaust Tower or Garden of Exile, with its 49 asymmetrical columns marking disorientation. The most disturbing room is undoubtedly the one in which the Israeli artist Menashe Kadishman's installation Schalechet (Fallen Leaves), with its 10,000 metal faces lining the floor, is located. The whole building surprises by its diagonals and parallels, and by its empty spaces through which the scars of history, loss and absence are visible.

Since the summer of 2020, a new, modern and interactive permanent exhibition has opened on the floors of the Jüdisches Museum. It is dedicated to German-Jewish history and culture from the 9th century to the present day. The tour begins with the founding text for Jewish culture, the Bible. Then the tour takes a more chronological tour. We will learn more about "Ashkenas", the medieval name given by the Jews to the territory north of the Alps, and then about the introduction of printing and the Reformation. The entire history of Germany is traced through the Jewish perspective. The 18th century saw the beginnings of the Haskala, an emancipation movement inspired by the Enlightenment, in which Berlin played a key role with its literary salons. We then descend the stairs of the "Hall of Fame", which gives pride of place to German Jewish personalities (Hannah Arendt, Heinrich Heine, etc.), to arrive at the part of the exhibition devoted to the tragedies of the 20th century: the persecutions inflicted on the Jews by the Nazis, forced exile and the Holocaust. Then comes the post-war period and the impossible return to normality. At the end, a captivating video installation gives the floor to Jews from all over the world to show all its diversity. Contemporary works are shown here and there in the new exhibition.

J'ai adoré ma visite, malgré que certaines salles étaient fermées. L'architecture est faite pour nous faire ressentir des émotions, assez spécial. Prenez l'audioguide, sinon je crois qu'on passe à côté de plusieurs choses...

Le moment le plus fort de ma semaine à Berlin. L'architecture du lieu est absolument impressionante et participe grandement à l'émotion du lieu. Il ne faut surtout pas hésiter à prendre un audio-guide. Celui-ci est excellent et sans lui j'ai le sentiment que l'on peut passer à côté de beaucoup de choses. Et cela serait vraiment dommage.
J'en profite pour dénoncer ces touristes qui trouvent indispensable de graver leur nom ou initiales dans tous les lieux qu'ils visitent. Même sur des monuments commémoratifs ! Honte à eux !!!

Ce musée est très intéressant et raconte l' histoire tragique des Juifs et de l' holocauste. L' architecture est remarquable et les nombreuses salles à visiter sont très instructives.

Excellente présentation du riche - mais tellement tragique - parcours des communautés juives en Allemagne et de leur contribution à l'histoire de ce pays. Prévoir d'y passer au minimum deux heures pleines. Énormément d'informations.

Musée très intéressant. audio guide en français pour 3E. Belle architecture, le musée est bien pensé et très ludique (tiroirs et portes à ouvrir). On peut écrire un message de paix et l'accrocher à un arbre.

Le musée a été bien pensé tant au niveau de l'architecture qui sort de l'ordinaire qu'au niveau des explications. L'histoire et les traditions judaique sont représentées à travers des films, des objets, des souvenirs. A voir absolument!

Incontournable pour architectes et ceux qui aiment les musée avec beaucoup d'explication comme moi. J'y suis allé plus de 5 fois et je trouve toujours des nouveaux détails a voir. Les explications avec interaction sont amusantes. Les expositions temporaires thématique sont souvent excellentes.
