Berlin Under The Swastika
We are Walkative! Our goal is to promote our cities across Poland, Germany, France and Ukraine - no matter what your budget is! Since 2007 we have guided more than 3 million people. We provide tours in English, Spanish, Polish and German mostly.
Once the heart of Jewish life in Germany, Berlin’s landscape changed irreversibly with the Nazi seizure of power. Within a matter of years, Europe’s most liberal and metropolitan city had been transformed into the capital of one of the most destructive regimes in human history: Hitler’s Third Reich, but also the birthplace of powerful forms of resistance - big and small.
Join Walkative! Tours on ‘Berlin under the Swastika’ to explore this dramatic shift in the history of the city, and trace the steps of the rise of the Third Reich to its final destructive vision.
On this tour, we will go to the former Jewish quarter and learn about the thriving Jewish life here before 1933, and how it was soon lost. We will explore the former ministry district and Reichstag, and discuss the propaganda machine and glorification of the Fuhrer, and we will see, too, the memorials dedicated to the groups victimised by the Nazis - from the Roma and Sinti to the homosexuals.
After this 3.5 hour tour, you will see how after rebuilding itself twice since the Second World War, Berlin became the city it is now: never hiding anything about its gruesome past, but openly trying to make amends and pay respect to the people who suffered here during that time.
