Holocaust. The Information Centre at the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

The new exhibition catalog to the exhibition in the Information Centre provides a comprehensive chronology of the persecution and extermination of the European Jews. The catalog describes the dimension of the Holocaust, the historic sites of the crimes and the sites of remembrance in detail. The main focus is on the fates of victims who are told through numerous personal documents. The President of the German Bundestag Prof. Dr. Norbert Lammert and the State Minister of Culture Prof. Monika Grütters wrote a foreword for the catalog. A great number of photographs, diary entries, letters and documents, that are not part of the exhibition, are documenting the systematic genocide of the Jews.

»Speaking in spite of everything« The Video Archive of the Foundation Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Picture: Cover of the catalog »Voices of Survival« The Video Archive of the Foundation Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe

Between 2007 and 2014 the Foundation Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe produced more than 70 video interviews: Survivors of Nazi persecution talked about their fate, their families and ways of life, their hopes and fears. In this way, they bequeathed an archive for future generations that is characterized by the need for disclosure of their memories and for which they have set themselves a difficult task: Speaking in spite of everything. The carefully developed interviews are shown in the exhibition of the Holocaust Memorial and the Internet. The catalog contains brief biographies of the interviewees and information about the video archive.

The Foundations Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe, Topography of Terror and New Synagogue Berlin – Centrum Judaicum took the occasion of the 75th Anniversary of the ›Kristallnacht‹ in 2013 to revise and expand the exhibition »Fire!«, which was first shown in 2008. The exhibition is dedicated to the incidents that took place in the capital of the Reich, Berlin, and displays various examples of the architectural diversity of synagogues in Central Europe, their destruction and how synagogues and their ruins were dealt with after 1938. In this way the exhibition shows the different forms of remembrance in the Federal Republic, the GDR and reunited Germany, in Austria, the Czech Republic and France as well as in the former German territories that now belong to Poland and the Russian Federation.

»Facing Justice – Adolf Eichmann on Trial«

Picture: Cover exhibition catalogue »Facing Justice - Adolf Eichmann on Trial«

Fifty years ago, in April 1961, the Jerusalem District Court opened proceedings against Adolf Eichmann, former SS Obersturmbannführer and head of section IV B 4 for “Jewish Affairs.” The trial became a major media event. But it was not only a single perpetrator in the Holocaust who was brought before the public eye. For the first time, descriptions by victims received attention around the world. In Jerusalem the era of contemporary witnesses had dawned. Eichmann’s appearance before the court also triggered discussions about the guilt and responsibility of individuals within the Nazi system. This exhibition, designed around the original film footage from the courtroom, is dedicated to these two aspects of the trial: witness testimony and the perpetrator’s strategy.

»What was deemed fully legal at the time ... – Soldiers and civilians tried before the courts of the German military«

Picture: Cover exhibition catalogue »›What was deemed fully legal at the time ...‹ – Soldiers and civilians tried before the courts of the military«

The catalogue offers visitors of the travelling exhibition more detailed information on the history of military justice under National Socialism. Initially the system of Nazi military justice and the central core of its injustice are described. Selected case studies thematise the focus of the exhibition, intended to memorialise the victims of military courts and their justice. A contribution on the practice of judgment and biographies of the judges show just how willingly even military judges not closely allied with the regime absorbed National Socialist thinking and the ideology of the folk community into their judicial practice. The biographies of individual judges and the section on the exclusion and failure to deal with victims of military justice in the two post-war Germanies make abundantly clear the continuity in discrimination down into the most recent period. The victims were not legally rehabilitated until 2002.

»FIRE!« Anti-Jewish Terror on Kristallnacht in November 1938

Picture: Cover exhibition catalogue »FIRE!« Anti-Jewish Terror on Kristallnacht in November 1938

The exhibition Fire! Anti-Jewish Terror on »Kristallnacht« in November 1938 and this companion volume document lesser known photographs from 1938/39 taken by both professional and amateur photographers.
The images and accompanying essays provide a vivid illustration of the actions of the perpetrators and the conduct of the German population. They make clear that the distinction between spectator and perpetrator was in fact a very fluid one. The reactions of the victims and the response from abroad are also examined.
