Miami-Dade College’s North Campus, in collaboration with the Consulate General of the Federal Republic of Germany, will hold a new exhibit showcasing the life, culture and experience of Jews living in Germany at the campus library.
The exhibit encompasses 25 panels that tell the stories of Jewish authors, rabbis, entrepreneurs, students and community members who live in Germany today. To create an informative and attractive exhibition, film and sound content are implemented in the panels via QR-codes that can be read with the help of smart phones.
Today, Germany is fortunate to once again be home to a vibrant and thriving Jewish community. Over the past two decades, the Jewish population in Germany has grown from fewer than 30,000 in 1990 to more than 120,000 today. The exhibition brings these numbers to life.
“This wonderful exhibition shows how vibrant, diverse and rich Jewish life is in Germany today,” stated Mr. Jürgen Borsch, Consul General of the Federal Republic of Germany. “We are proud to have a fastgrowing Jewish community in Germany, and we invite everyone to come to Germany and see it with your own eyes,” he added.
The exhibition is free and open to the public until March 27th at the MDC North campus Library located at 11380 NW 27 Avenue, Miami, FL 33167 Room 2101. For more information, call 305-237-1141.
