The new magazine of the Dubnow Institute offers insights into the diversity of Jewish lived experiences from modernity into the present. Each issue is dedicated to a specific theme, examining topical questions, establishing fundamental connections, and discussing contrary perspectives. Further aspects of the respective topic are discussed in the columns Position, Critique, and Archive.


The second edition examines the emergence and recent development of Jewish museums – in Germany, Europa and beyond the borders of the continent. In the permanent sections Position, Critique and Archive, two anniversaries are taken up: the 200th birthday of Karl Marx and the iconic year 1968.
