Digital Map

Geschichtomat is a digital city map of Jewish Hamburg from the perspective of young people who record their impressions in videos, photos and texts. What places are there to discover in your neighborhood?

For Class

Over the past years, students in Hamburg have produced a wide variety of video clips on Jewish history, culture and the present in their city. In order to be able to use these clips in school, we provide a didactic guide and worksheets.
