Jewish Museum, Berlin: 55 reviews and 112 photos

It is the largest Jewish museum in Europe and one of the must-see in Berlin. Go through two thousand years of Jewish history in Germany and the contributions of this community to the culture, art and other fields. The 14 sections of the museum, ranging from Roman times to the Middle Ages, the Enlightenment and Emancipation to the Holocaust, and so on until the emergence of the new Jewish community in Germany.
There is only one part dealing directly with the Holocaust, but its horror is reflected in the architecture of the building concerned. Designed by Daniel Libeskind, is a metaphor for the troubled history of the Jewish people.
The symbolism continues in the interior. A steep stairway down to the three passages that cross inhospitable called "axis". The axis of the garden that leads to exile from exile and emigration, a field of concrete columns with a sloping olive top of the column. The axis of the Holocaust that led to the Holocaust Tower, one of several gaps in the museum, burial spaces that symbolize the loss of humanity, culture and life.

Es el museo judio mas grande de europa y una de las visitas obligadas de Berlin. Repasa los dos mil años de historia judia en Alemania y las contribuciones de esta comunidad a la cultura, el arte y otros campos.
Las 14 secciones del museo abarcan desde la época romana a la Edad Media, de la Ilustración y la Emancipacion hasta el Holocausto, y así hasta el resurgir de la nueva comunidad judia en Alemania.
Solo hay una parte que trata directamente el holocausto, pero su horror está reflejado en la inquietante aquitectura del edificio. Diseñado por Daniel Libeskind, es una metafora de la atormentada historia del pueblo judio.
El simbolismo prosigue en el interior. Una empinada escalera baja hasta los tres inhóspitos pasajes que se cruzan llamados "ejes". El eje del exilio que conduce al jardin del exilio y la emigración, un campo de columnas inclinadas de cemento con un olivo en parte de arriba de la columna. El eje del holocausto que lleva a la torre del holocausto, uno de los diversos vacios del museo, espacios sepulcrales que simbolizan la perdida de la humanidad, la cultura y la vida.
