jewish quarter in berlin
Hello! My name is Gaia and I am an official tour guide in Italy and Germany. I have been living in Berlin enough to know this beautiful city as a local so I'll be happy to share its culture and best kept secrets so you'll take with you a memorable experience.
Where books are burned, people are also burned.
Henry Heine, 1831
The Berlin Jewish Quarter itinerary focuses mainly on the Mitte district (city center). Here resided the Jewish community of Berlin which, according to the 1933 census, numbered 160,000 people. Internationally renowned intellectuals, writers, philosophers and musicians lived there. In 1945 there were about 1,900 in Berlin and about 5,000 in all of Germany.
The story of large numbers, however, sometimes diminishes the value of individual lives. The Jewish quarter preserves the memory of the buildings that were evacuated and the rooms and apartments that became precious hideouts.
Together we will learn the stories of the Silent Eros, we will visit the courts of Hackescher Markt (Rosenhöfe), the New Synagogue (exterior) and the Disappeared House. Be sure to travel back in time to distant Nazi Berlin thanks to the stories and anecdotes of our local and well-trained guides!
