||The library and media library of the Jüdisches Museum underpins the museum’s express aim of providing a centre of information on the history of the Jews. More than 33,000 books, brochures and audio-visual media as well as 210 historic periodicals are available here.
Based on the personal libraries from the estates of Dr. Rudolf Heilbrunn, Prof. Dr. Bernhard Brilling and Rabbi Kurt Wilhelm, the collection has been constantly expanded to include literature on Judaism, the history of the Jewish community in Germany and Central Europe and films relating to the individual exhibition sections of the museum. Alongside a wide range of scholarly and academic studies, the library also presents illustrated Judaica as well as exhibition catalogues, art catalogues and literature of regional relevance. Most of the library’s holdings are in German, English or Hebrew.
