Danish Jewish Museum

A look at Jewish history.

The word 'Mitzvah' refers to God's commandments to the Jews and it is also translated as 'duty, commitment and good work'. 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. A story about the triumph of life over death displayed among wooden spaces designed by Jewish architect Daniel Libeskind and opened in 2004. The exhibition also includes examples of Danish Jewish art from the 17th century to the present.
