Public guided tour on International Museum Day
A 14-year-old unaccompanied youth stands at the Berlin city gates in 1743, desiring entry and a future. He wants to learn, to work, to live. But the restrictive conditions of the Prussian Jewish laws do not provide for equal participation.
The general human rights do not apply to him as a member of a minority: Moses Mendelssohn, Jew.
Who determines where and how a person may live? By what right? Has Mendelssohn integrated himself enough in the eyes of the majority society to be accepted as an equal citizen?
Based on Mendelssohn's biography and the debates of the time, participants learn about positions on the topics of belonging and equality, power and conscience.
