The expulsion of Jewish bathers on the Baltic Sea.
With the rise of the seaside resorts in the Wilhelmine Empire, "spa anti-Semitism" also appeared on the scene. "Judenrein!" was the slogan long before the Nazi state became a reality. Based on the book of the same name by Kristine von Soden, selected texts by Else Lasker-Schüler, Victor Klemperer and Mascha Kaléko, for example, will be shown alongside historical documents and postcards, shedding light on both sides of everyday beach life: the natural beauty and relaxation of the Baltic Sea and the increasing anti-Semitic threat until 1937, when almost all Baltic Sea beaches were banned for Jewish visitors.
