Anti-Semitism in the GDR

As is well known, eastern Germany was also part of the National Socialist perpetrator country. The state, however, declared the population to be a nation of anti-fascists.

Fourteen double-sided panels and two audio and video stations, each with eight audio and video files, are presented: Contemporary witnesses talk about their experiences with anti-Semitism in the GDR and experts explain the historical background.

Stands more than two meters high guide visitors through various chapters that were conceived by 76 young people from eight East German cities in a project of the Amadeu Antonio Foundation: Anti-Semitism in everyday life, right-wing extremism in the 1980s, anti-Zionism in politics and the media, instrumentalization of Jewish communities in the 1980s, and more.

To this day, the myth persists that there was no anti-Semitism in the GDR.

This special exhibition was conceived by the Amadeu Antonio Foundation.
