At the Jewish Museum Worms, you can experience a time travel through ShUM in one to two hours. Or here – through photos and films, short texts and icons, we tell you about the structure of the exhibition - and then you will perhaps travel to Worms?
The Jewish Museum
The Jewish Museum in the Rashi-House shows the exhibition on the ShUM communities in the ground floor and basement. In the lecture room, you can watch some movies about history and marvel at 3-D reconstructions of Jewish monuments.
Gateway to ShUM
Go through the gate. There the time travel begins. Prayers, horse carts and singing Women accompany you.
An installation disturbing the room tells about the Shoah and safeguards six exemplary biographies, e.g. of Elisabeth Spies or Heinz Guttmann.
Watch historical film footage of the reopening of the Worms: synagogue on December 3, 1961 – or a short film on the history of the Worms’ synagogue. You can also listen to the son of a Worms Jew, who tells of his family history.
