The exhibition entitled “We have come for free trade...” A different post-war history: The Iranian-Jewish community in Hamburg uses the example of various family histories of this group to illuminate a different Jewish post-war history, with migration and economic history intertwined and with Hamburg serving as a local and at the same time global point of reference for several decades.
The exhibition “Nothing. Just Leave!” Escape from Germany and New Beginnings in Buenos Aires, Montevideo and São Paulo focuses on three cities that have so far received little attention as destinations for German-Jewish emigrants from Nazi Germany.
Using these three urban areas as examples, the difficult history of the decision to emigrate is traced through to the aftermath of this (family) biographical caesura in today's South America.
