This temporary exhibition explores Jewish experiences of escape and expulsion in Europe directly after the war. It fills the entire exhibition space on the lower level of the new "Lichtbau" extension building, designed by Staab Architekten.
From Białystok to Frankfurt and Amsterdam, from Berlin to Budapest and Bari – the Jewish Museum Frankfurt is the first museum in the world to examine contemporary Jewish history in the post-Shoah period from a pan-European perspective. Against the backdrop of Europe’s current crisis, the exhibition presents the immediate postwar period as the hour the European idea was born and shows how this idea is reflected in the biographies of the surviving Jews. In addition, it illustrates that in the postwar period, Jewish immigrants contributed to the development of concepts, perspectives, and agreements in international law that are still valid today.
