Abstract

Decades after the Shoah and in view of many traumatic experiences of flight and migration, the members of Regensburg's Jewish community are reflecting on their cultural heritage and how to communicate it. The format of the exhibition, conceived by and for the community, but also for the general public, lends itself to this. Due to the omnipresent interweaving of Jewish and non-Jewish history and culture, the selection of German, Latin, and Hebrew sources for such an exhibition on medieval Jewish Regensburg also leads to a new critical reflection on the cultural heritage that has emerged from it.
