An exploration of Jewish ritual practices that commemorate pivotal ideas, moments and experiences, ensuring that they will be remembered throughout time. 55 objects serve as points of departure for thinking about these rituals (especially those associated with rites of passage) and their associated strategies. Material presented according to the idea they commemorate: the Temple, Life, the Fatherland, the Law, Creation, the Camps, etc. The final section challenged the visitor to remember that which has been intentionally forgotten—in this instance, the brothel at Dachau. Exhibits included the Hitler Haggadah. In-depth entries. 55 items.
