The Museum Judengasse, on the site of Frankfurt’s medieval Jewish ghetto, has reopened as part of a wide-ranging expansion and restructuring of the Frankfurt Jewish Museum‘s permanent exhibitions. The Museum Judengasse houses an exhibition presenting Jewish history up until 1800. With the “Museum Judengasse” at Börneplatz, the Jewish Museum has a dependency right at the historic heart of Jewish life in Frankfurt. Centrepieces of the collection are foundations of buildings from the former “Judengasse”.

Documented is the history of this lane, its inhabitants and houses over a period of 350 years. In the Museum the life of deported and slain Frankfurt Jews can be traced, whose names are remembered at the memorial “Neue Börneplatz”.

Media installations show Jewish daily life and culture in Frankfurt in early modern times. The new entrance to the museum emphasizes the Jewish cemetery that dates back to the Middle Ages, and to the memorial of the Frankfurt Jews that were deported and murdered.
