In 2015 the city of Berlin hosted the European Maccabi Games. It was the first time that the biggest Jewish sporting event in Europe was held in Germany. To accompany the games the Jewish Museum of Berlin asked me to produce a series of portraits presenting twelve members of the German delegation. The pictures were taken on the compound and in the club house of the traditional Berlin sports club "TuS Makkabi".

The curators Tamar Lewinsky and Theresia Ziehe conducted interviews with the twelve team members. The portraits and interviews are now part of the museum's collection.
