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.
The most important centers of Jewish life in Berlin was the area around Hackesher Markt and the Orianburgerstraße . Our tour begins in the legendary Hackescher Höfe, from there we visit one of Berlins most magnificent buildings, the restorated New Synagogue, where the worlds first female rabbi was ordained during the nazi era.
We show you the scene of Jewish history in Berlin; From the first settlers during the enlightenment to the persecution by the Nazi’s right up to the incredible comeback of Jewish life today.
