Jewish people went through a range of different experiences during the early post-war period. The exhibition “Our Courage. Jews in Europe 1945-48” vividly depicts the lives, suffering, hopes, and aspirations of Jews from a pan-European perspective in seven locations in Europe in the immediate aftermath of the Shoah. It demonstrates that Jewish survivors and refugees were not apathetic victims—on the contrary, they took their lives into their own hands and were active in shaping them.

The tour connects individual biographies to the larger historical framework. At the same time, it situates these in the context of a new international order: from the beginning of the Cold War to the founding of the State of Israel, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and the Genocide Convention.

Participation is included in the museum admission fee. Due to current hygienic measures, we ask you to register no later than one working day prior to the desired date: besuch.jmf@stadt-frankfurt.de
