A look at Jewish history.

This slogan is used for the avant-garde design Danish Jewish Museum, that like Russian Matrioska dolls is like a series of museums, one inside another, starting with the old building built in the eighteenth century under the reign of Christian IV. After being a prison and royal library, the Jewish Museum is now a historical attraction paying homage to the 7,000 Danish Jews evacuated to Sweden and the 500 deported to Germany during the Holocaust.
