Exhibition “Picture Stories: Portraits of Munich Jews”

Article publié le 25 March 2024

Before the war, the Jewish community was as diverse as other European Jewish communities. With its characters, personal experiences, professional achievements… This exhibition presents characters as diverse as a child in a sailor suit, a woman in a beret with very thick sleeves, and a rabbi reading a prayer book. These are works that have been found over time, and we often don’t know who they represent or even who made them. We are left to imagine their history, the way the artists looked at them and the trace the models wished to leave of them.
