Paving the Way for All Women – Exhibit Traces Paths of Jewish Women in Germany

Margarete Berent

The second installment in a collaboration with the German Ambassador in Washington, DC, this exhibit showcases the everyday lives and extraordinary accomplishments of Jewish women in Germany. It combines portraits of luminaries like the brilliant salonnière Rahel Varnhagen with seemingly profane objects like a “Jewish Cookbook” from the turn of the 20th century.
