UNCOVERING JEWISH HISTORY OF WEST BERLIN
Join this Jewish Berlin tour to explore Wilmersdorf-Charlottenburg, the affluent neighborhood of West Berlin. From the late eighteen hundreds it became a playground for Jewish merchants, bankers, the intellectual and cultural elite. The area preserved a lot of its fascinating Jewish heritage.
Why did the first major outbreak of violence against the Jews happen in West Berlin? How did the main synagogue of the West Berlin Jews look? Who was the girl that presented the German Emperor with a bouquet of flowers at the synagogue’s opening?
Uncover the Jewish stories of West Berlin’s main symbols: the KaDeWE, Kurfürstendamm and the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. Accompanied by your private guide, you’ll explore the bohemian neighborhood of West Berlin and hear exciting, yet often dramatic stories of its Jewish settlers.
