"From a Berlin Farce to a Story of Success" tells of the origins of the Jewish Museum Berlin and the debates surrounding them.

"Highlights from the Jewish Museum" allows readers to (re)visit the collection, providing interesting facts from German-Jewish history.  Back in 2001, two books were published on the museum that are documented here but are no longer on sale.

"From a Berlin Farce to a Story of Success"
On the Origins of the Jewish Museum Berlin 1971 – 2001

Since its opening in September 2001, the Jewish Museum Berlin has established itself as one of the best-known museums in Germany – in the preceding years, however, there was fierce controversy over its erection. It is precisely this "political history" that Daniel Bussenius records in the fascinating and well-researched volume "From a Berlin Farce to a Story of Success."
