Jewish Museum Westphalia in Dorsten

The Jewish Museum Westphalia at the edge of Dorsten's old town is a unique center for the documentation of Jewish history and religion.

The JÜDISCHES MUSEUM WESTFALEN is a museum and centre of education which aims not only to showcase the Jewish culture and religion, but to allow visitors to encounter Jewish life. The permanent exhibition links religion and customs with aspects of the Jewish history of Westphalia from the Middle Ages to the present. The lives of 14 men and women illustrate the community of Jewish and non-Jewish Germans in Westphalia through good and bad times.
