Hardly any other people have influenced the cultural history of this city as did the 160,000 strong Jewish population that once thrived here. Prussia was the first country to grant Jews full citizenship and it was Berlin to which they were magically drawn. From secular to ultra-orthodox, many Jewish intellectuals, peddlers and artists made Berlin their home and left behind an rich history of Jewish culture and life.
