Special Exhibition

From Białystok via Frankfurt to Amsterdam,
from Berlin via Budapest to Bari: The exhibition “Our Courage” is the
first project of its kind to present the diversity of Jewish experience
in the early post-war period from a pan-European, transnational
perspective.

The exhibition conveys how survivors reacted to the violence they experienced, as well as the ways in which they took their fate into their own hands. Against the backdrop of current crises, it reflects on the immediate post-war period as a time marked by displacement, violence, and the will to survive. This was an era in which Jews not only founded new, autonomous communities and their own state, but also developed concepts, perspectives and agreements under international law that are still valid today.

The exhibition "Our Courage. Jews in Europe 1945-48" was conceived by the Jewish Museum Frankfurt am Main and can be seen as a second stop at the Documentation Centre for Displacement, Expulsion, Reconciliation.
