The exhibition portrays twelve young people with their diverse, international migration biographies. The portraits tell of their different origins and identities and at the same time reflect on their Jewish self-understanding in Germany and in Europe.

For example, Akiva Weingarten, who grew up in a strictly orthodox Chassidic family in New York, Greta Zelener, who moved from Odessa to Berlin at the age of six, or Mo'men Ahmed, who fled from Iraq to Europe in 2014.
They all reflect the plurality and diversity of a new immigration society and a new Jewish community in Germany, which has resulted from the immigration of a quarter of millions of Jews from the former Soviet Union, as well as the immigration of several thousand Israelis in recent years.
The exhibition "#Babel 21. Migration und Jüdische Gemeinschaft" is grouped with numerous texts and pictures about the five thoughts of family, migration, home, religion and diversity. The portraits are scholarship holders as well as Alumnae of the Ernst Ludwig Ehrlich Studienwerk, which promotes talented Jewish students and graduate students.
