Your Jewish Berlin tour begins at the remaining foundations of the so-called Old Synagogue, where your guide, a Jewish Studies scholar, will help you to grasp the challenges faced by German Jews during the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The major focus, however, will be the main sites of Berlin’s 19th- and 20th-century Jewish history: the districts of Spandauer Vorstadt and Scheunenviertel (known as the “Barn Quarter”) in Berlin-Mitte. Here you will learn of the profound contribution of Berlin Jews to German culture even as they faced centuries of persecution, tragically culminating in the Holocaust. You’ll leave this tour with a new appreciation of the Jewish experience in Berlin and of the forces of antisemitism and Nazi fascism that led to modern genocide.
