Statement of the Museum

We are still devastated by the terrorist attacks on Israeli civilians on 7 October. We mourn the victims and our thoughts are with their friends and families, with the people of Israel, and with all those who suffer from Hamas’ violence.
Not only in Israel, but for Jewish life worldwide, these events mark a turning point. We are very concerned about the increasing number of anti-Semitic incidents in Germany and around the world. For us, this is also a sign of how important our mission as a Jewish Museum is. We want to make Jewish history and culture visible and tangible, we want to facilitate dialogue and continue to advocate for an open and diverse society without extremism.

the museum’s city center location is open to visitors again during regular opening hours. The Former Kriegshaber Synagogue is open every Thursday and on some Sundays.

About us

The Jewish Museum Augsburg Swabia is a place where aspects of migration, integration, homeland and culture are discussed from a Jewish perspective and where it is shown that diversity is neither a threat nor a selling point, but simply a normality.
