The German-language version of the exhibition In the Footsteps of Jewish Women in Europe was opened on 18th of April, 2024, at the Old Synagoge in the town of Steinsfurt. The exhibition is being visited by school students throughout the duration that it is displayed.

This exhibition, created in the framework of the HerStories project, conveys the multifaceted Jewish history of the 20th century in Europe through the biographies of seven Jewish women from Germany, Poland, Greece, Spain, Hungary, Slovakia, and Czechia.

Traveling in the footsteps of seven European Jewish women we can see where they were in particular moments in history, what they experienced, and how they felt during the first decades of the 20th century, the interwar period, the dark years of the Second World War and the Holocaust, and postwar Europe. Oral history interviews with Rosa Rosenstein, Katarína Löfflerova, Ludmila Rutarova, Irena Wygodzka, and Vera Szekeres-Varsa, Lisa Pinhas’ memoir and biography, and the account of Rosl Heilbrunner's daughter Dory Sontheimer, give us invaluable insight into their lives.

The German-language exhibition will be displayed in Steinsfurt until May 1st, and will then move on to the city of Hamburg.
