The exhibition "Shared History - 1700 Years of Jewish Life in the German-Speaking World" highlights the individual and collective experiences that shaped Jewish life in the German-speaking world over the centuries: discrimination, exclusion and disenfranchisement on the one hand, acceptance, acculturation and social advancement on the other.

It is a shared history, in the truest sense of the word. For the history of Jews has been deeply interwoven with the history of the majority population in the regions and countries of this space for centuries. The objects depicted on glass exhibition panels illustrate the polyphony of German-Jewish life as well as the experienced and lived Shared History of social minority and majority, both in their glory days and in their most terrible moments.
"Shared Histroy" invites visitors to explore historical dynamics and address contemporary issues.
The exhibition was developed by the Leo Baeck Institute New York|Berlin (LBI) on behalf of the German Bundestag. It is part of the Leo Baeck Institute's virtual project of the same name.
