Jewish Heritage Tour

From:

260.00

Description

In the early twentieth century, Berlin had one of the largest Jewish populations of any city in Europe and Jews were well integrated in the fabric of life in the German capital. They occupied prominent positions in government, made essential contributions in the fields of art and science, worked in factories and owned small businesses. Albert Einstein lectured at several Berlin universities and also played violin concerts at the New Synagogue.

This thriving community, and others like it across Europe, would then be ruthlessly destroyed under National Socialism. Jewish culture in Germany became synonymous with sites of Nazi atrocity, and with names such as Auschwitz, Treblinka, and Dachau.

On this tour our expert local guides will walk you through areas of Jewish Heritage, sites of Jewish cultural significance, and address in detail the tragedy of the Holocaust – telling the stories of people and places with passion, tact, and respect.

You will journey through the iconic concrete stellae of the Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe; stand in the grand shadow of the reconstructed facade of the New Synagogue, formerly the largest synagogue in Germany; pause on the streets to pay tribute to victims of Nazism at the Stölperteine, ‘Stumbling Blocks’, memorials; visit the grave of Moses Mendelssohn and more.

As always the tour can be tailored to you and can be done on foot, with a vehicle, or by bicycle, and is also available in Hebrew. We are also more than happy to help you with restaurant reservations and museum or gallery visits.

Sites Included: Former Jewish Quarter, Jewish Memorial, New Synagogue, Jewish Graveyard and Mendelssohn’s Gravesite, Stolpersteine and more...
