Exhibition “Aunt Olga’s Silver Candlesticks: A Munich Family History”

Article publié le 22 November 2023

Until 17 March 2024 at the Jewish Museum in Munich

In 1939, a decree was issued requiring Munich’s Jews to hand over their jewellery and other precious metals, including Sabbath candlesticks, to the local authorities. These discriminatory measures, which began when the Nazis came to power in 1933, became increasingly violent and led to the Shoah. This exhibition gives visitors an insight into how this tragedy was experienced by a Jewish woman from the same town who was simply trying to live her life.
