Jüdisches Museum der Schweiz,
Kornhausgasse 8, 4051Basel
What does Jewish mean? Objects from two millennia offer an insight into the oldest Abrahamic world religion and into a community that continues to shape Switzerland today.
An antique ring, medieval documents, Early Modern books, household goods from the 18th and 19th centuries, speeches calling for equal rights, testimonies from the Zionist Congress, asylum seekers’ possessions, contemporary items from modern-day Jewish families: experience Switzerland’s history from a fresh perspective.
