Mapping Memories: Judengasse Extended @ Judengasse museum
Apr 13 – Apr 30 all-day
Mapping Memories: Judengasse Extended @ Judengasse museum | Frankfurt am Main | Hessen | Germany

The multi-day event “Mapping Memories” revolves around the violently suppressed traces of Frankfurt’s Judengasse from public space. At its center is a pop-up exhibition in the Museum Judengasse with archaeological finds from the time of Europe’s oldest Jewish ghetto; also an artistic intervention in the current form of the historic site.

The exhibition, with archaeological finds that were recovered from Börneplatz – formerly the southern part of the Judengasse ghetto – in 1987, will be held in the atrium of the Museum Judengasse.

It opens at 18:00 on April 13 — to attend, register with anmeldung@metahubfrankfurt.de

The exhibition is a cooperation with the Archaeological Museum Frankfurt.

It shows archaeological finds that were recovered in 1987 at Börneplatz, at the place where they were found at the time. It presents ongoing research and new insights into the everyday culture of Jews in early modern Frankfurt. The archaeological finds come both from the cellars of the Judengasse and from ditches for water supply and disposal.
