Jewish Museum - 10-year old anniversary

Jewish Museum Berlin celebrates 10 years and the week 24-30 October was rich in various cultural and educational events dedicated to the Jewish life in Germany's capital city. On Sunday, the doors were open for free to visitors all over the city. People waited in line and went through the security checking being waited by a rich program for young and old visitors. Among other things, there were offered guided tours of the museum or in the Jewish areas around, lectures, conferences.

Two gorgeous cakes on the shape of the museum were ready to be tasted.

The museum, designed by Daniel Libeskind, is organized in a symbolic way, as a testimony of the rich history of the Jewish life in Germany and Berlin, the dramatic history of the WWII and the problematic post-war reconciliation and current renewal.

Nowadays, Jewish life in Berlin is considered one of the fastest growing communities in the world.

  1. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
    The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
