Oskar und Emilie Schindler Lernzentrum

 

Inaugurated in the Museum Judengasse on 9 November 2003, the new museum-pedagogic Learning Centre is intended specifically for school classes and youth groups. It offers a range of information and work programmes that is continually extended. An exhibition with historical photos, recollections of survivors and a facsimile of the legendary list of names tells the story of the deliverance of more than 1200 Jewish forced labourers who worked in Oskar Schindler’s factory in Krakow and as of autumn 1944 in Brünnlitz.

The “Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation”, founded by Steven Spielberg, also recorded detailed video interviews with ca. 150 survivors of “Schindler’s List” . As historic document, these interviews, just as important as basis for future educational involvement with the holocaust, will form a major component of the new Learning Centre.

Since the opening of the memorial on Börneplatz in 1996, in a project unique in Germany, the Jewish Museum Frankfurt has researched the lives of more than 12000 deported and murdered Frankfurt Jews. The material is accessible via a terminal in the new Learning Centre and vividly underlines that each name on the wall of the memorial hides an individual fate and face.
