This walking tour will take through two old Berlin districts well known as the Barn District and the Spandauer Suburbia once the cradle of former Jewish life. You’ll start with the Memorial to the Women’s Protest and will learn where and how brave German Wife’s put their own life at risk to save their Jewish men. Admire the famous Hackeschen Höfe, one of Germany’s largest backyards ensemble where about 30 % of the residents in the 30ies were Jewish. Walk along to see the Oldest Jewish Cemetery in Berlin where Moses Mendelssohn was laid to rest.
A short visit to the Museum Otto Weidt’s Workshop for the Blind will teach you about this true German opponent to the Nazi Regime. See the plain but poignant Memorial to the November Pogrom (The abandoned Room). Your tour will then end at the New Synagogue on Oranienburger Street (built in 1866) where you might visit on your own the permanent exhibition which traces the history of the building and the life associated with it.
