About the Museum
The Mendelssohn-Remise is a memorial in Berlin-Mitte to the Jewish Mendelssohn family. In the former Bank and Mendelssohn family residence, visitors will learn about their enormous importance in the culture, business and science of the city. An exhibition presents the moving story of the family in the period leading up to National Socialism. Media stations in the foyer play musical works by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, keeping alive the tradition of the Mendelssohn family's involvement in cultural life. Concerts, readings and discussions are regularly held under the direction of Daniel Barenboim.
