The Jewish Museum Berlin Fellowship

The Jewish Museum Berlin’s own fellowship program is increasing our museum’s visibility as a research institution. The program was launched when the Academy was opened in fall 2012 and supports research projects that examine not only Jewish history and culture, but also migration and diversity in Germany.

In late 2014, Dr. Karen Körber completed the first fellowship project, titled “Everyday Realities: Contemporary Jewish Life in Germany.” At the heart of the project was the first nationwide study of second-generation Russian-speaking Jewish immigrants in Germany.

On the occasion of W. Michael Blumenthal’s ninetieth birthday, a fellowship in his name was launched as part of the Jewish-Islamic Forum.
