Survival through Music
Tour of the permanent exhibition and a visit to the Rafael Roth Learning Center
A tour through the exhibition section "German Jews' reaction to National Socialism" is combined with a visit to the Rafael Roth Learning Center.
Here the story of Coco Schumann - who experienced social exclusion and rightlessness as a young Jew in Berlin - is interactively and excitingly relayed. At the age of 18 he was deported first to the Theresienstadt ghetto and then to the Auschwitz-Birkenau extermination camp, which he survived as musician to the guards.
Numerous documentary film clips as well as pictures, texts, and audio recordings give a powerful insight into his life and survival.
A worksheet was developed for the Rafael Roth Learning Center to introduce visitors to the multimedia story. It includes tasks and questions on the material and is intended for secondary levels I and II.
The Concept of Combined Tours
Combined tours include a tour of one section of the exhibition and a visit to the Rafael Roth Learning Center, which is the multimedia exhibition space at the Jewish Museum Berlin.
With the help of a worksheet, students independently engage with the multimedia content of the Learning Center, answering questions on the offerings and source materials that they view and listen to at the computer stations.
In-depth information on additional content at the Rafael Roth Learning Center can be found in the "Museum on Site" section of this website.
