13 Drivers' Licenses is a portable exhibit that tells the individual stories of 13 Jewish citizens who were persecuted during the Nazi regime in Lichtenfels, Germany. The story behind this exhibit is extraordinary. After a discovery was made in an old building in the small Bavarian village of Lichtenfels of thirteen driving licenses that once belonged to Jewish citizens, these licenses were handed over to a local high school teacher. The teacher decided to seize this rare opportunity as a a way to ignite a research project for his students. The students for the next several months diligently worked on this project until they were able to locate all of the familial descendants of each of these individuals. The students reached out to these families, and notified them about their findings.
