Russian Museum of Jewish History and Tolerance Centre // Moscow, Russia On November 8, 2012 Israeli President Shimon Peres and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov officially opened the Russian Museum of Jewish History and Tolerance Centre in Moscow, which is the world's largest Jewish museum. The Jewish Museum and the Tolerance Center occupy an area of over 8500 square meters. There will be permanent and temporary exhibitions, a library, a museum shop, a research center, conference halls, a children's center and a kosher cafe. Along with traditional methods and tools, the museum includes the most advanced computer and audiovisual technologies. KRAFTWERK Living Technologies was responsible for the detailed planning and implementation of the entire audiovisual technology including a number of interactive exhibits. Starting point of the exhibition is the ‚Beginning Theatre' featuring a 3D film about the origins of Jewish faith and belief. The film is presented on a 360-degree screen and includes special effects like moving seats, wind, fog, mist and strobes. Another highlight is a panoramic film themed on the Holocaust / Great Patriotic War. Directly in front of the screens is a landscape of ‚Russian soil' with large objects sequentially illuminated in concert with audio narration and lighting effects. TURN ON UNITED TECHNOLOGIES.
