Digital memory platform of three major Frankfurt memory institutions

The Historical Museum Frankfurt, the Jewish Museum Frankfurt and the Institute for the History of Frankfurt are jointly designing an interactive and digital memory platform. The joint project will combine more than 15,000 datasets from the three institutions, which will then be processed and made available via an app and on a website.

Recalling National Socialist injustice

Today, the confrontation with National Socialism is now facing new challenges: In view of the dwindling number of historical eyewitnesses and the increasing diversity of urban society, new, inclusive and activating approaches are required. Under the National Socialists, the city of Frankfurt was transformed into an administrative center, which systematized the racist exploitation and persecution of its victims. Many places and signs in the city have reminders of individual aspects of this history.

Digital memory platform for a diverse urban society

The platform creates multi-perspective access to the discussion of the critical examination of National Socialist injustice in Frankfurt and makes knowledge accessible and usable for inclusive historical-political educational work with diverse groups of people. With the geo-based app, anyone with an interest can go in search of traces of the National Socialism in urban space. The website makes information about the approximately 12,000 Jews deported from Frankfurt and murdered publicly accessible.

"Frankfurt and Nazism" is a digital project of the Historical Museum Frankfurt, the Jewish Museum Frankfurt and the Institute for the History of Frankfurt.
