From 2 to 15 July 2018, the Jewish Life in Germany Today exhibition will be on display at the Jewish Holocaust Centre in Melbourne.

The exhibition is an initiative by the Federal Foreign Office and offers an insight into the historical and contemporary aspects of living in Germany as a member of the Jewish community.

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 this development to life, as members of the Jewish community talk about their experiences and explain what living in Germany means to them.

From students to authors, to rabbis and entrepreneurs, their stories, visualised and underlined by 25 poster panels, reflect the diversity of the German-Jewish community today.

The exhibition was previously shown in Sydney and in Cairns and has been brought to Melbourne by the Embassy of the Federal Republic of Germany in Canberra and the Jewish Holocaust Centre.
