The Jewish Museum Hohenems presents four centuries of Jewish life in Hohenems and its transnational networks. It confronts questions of contemporary Jewish culture in Europe, of migration and Diaspora, conflicting claims of identity and intercultural relations.
The museum deals with anti-Semitism and regional Nazi history, and tells about new beginnings after 1945 and the Hohenems Diaspora today.
Along with fragments of regional and global history, it focusses on individuals and their experience. It maintains a close relationship to descendants from Hohenems around the world – and offers changing exhibitions and extensive programs of events.
Visitors find audio guides and video installations in German, English and French – and a children’s exhibition.
