Jewish Museum Frankfurt
Jewish Museum Frankfurt
The Jewish Museum Frankfurt am Main covers the history and culture of the Jewish communities in Frankfurt, Germany, from the 12th to the 20th centuries. There is another branch of the museum, the Museum Judengasse, in a different part of town.
The Museum Judengasse, located at Börneplatz, was built on the foundations of several houses in the Judengasse (the Jewish ghetto, dating from 1462) that had been excavated in 1987. The museum documents the history of the Judengasse up to its abolition in 1796. Remnants from the walls of the Börneplatz synagogue are integrated into the museum.
To commemorate the 650th anniversary of the Golden Bull of 1356, four museums in Frankfurt organised an exhibition called Die Kaisermacher ("The Emperor-Makers") from 2006 to 2007. The Museum Judengasse contributed archaeological findings, documenting in particular the role played by the Jews of Frankfurt as the Emperor's servi camerae regis.
