Jewish Life in Germany Today
Fri 09 Feb - Sun 25 Feb
This exhibition combines the historical and contemporary aspects of living as a member of the Jewish community in Germany.
Over the past two decades, the Jewish population in Germany has grown from fewer than 30,000 in 1990 to more than 200,000 today. Jewish Life in Germany Today brings these numbers to life. In concise and striking statements visualized with 25 poster panels, Jews explain what living in Germany means to them, how the history of the holocaust influenced their personal lives, and the dreams they have for their future in Germany. From students to best-selling authors, to rabbis and entrepreneurs, their biographies reflect the diversity of the German-Jewish community today and are a testament to the transformation that Germany has undergone as a nation since WWII.
Jewish Life in Germany Today has been brought to Cairns by the German Honorary Consulate in Cairns.
