Berlin -- Jewish Museum turns 10

By Ruth Ellen Gruber

Quick reposting of an article on the Jewish Museum in Berlin -- which last month celebrated its 10th anniversary.

I well remember how, as the article puts it

Even in the late 1990s, people would wait for months to get a tour of the bare frame of the building with its dark stairwells, empty spaces and crooked walls. Paths and corridors branch off to symbolic destinations - to the outside, to freedom, to a 'Garden of Exile,' or to a dead end.
