Axel Springer and the Jews, is a multimedia exhibition documenting the German-Israeli relationship unfolding in the 1950s and 60s on the pages of the tabloid BILD -- German for picture. BILD was founded by Axel Springer in 1952, and then like today it mostly consisted of pictures, it soon became the best-selling tabloid, by a wide margin, not only in Germany, but in all of Europe. Axel Springer had a lot of influence in the 50s and the 60s he brought the Jewish people and the German people closer together so they could understand each other.
This exhibition documents the leading role that Axel Springer and his tabloid BILD played on building the relationship of post-war Germany with Israel and the Jewish people, and what is that relationship like today. It seems that Axel Springer will live on forever, his tabloid BILD is still the number one tabloid in Europe with 4 million copies sold every day in Germany.
