A Virtual Tour of Jewish Berlin: The Holocaust and Re-Birth of Berliner Jews
Spanning the time period from the Jewish Berlin of the 1930s through WW2 and up to the modern day city, we will discuss how the life of the Berliner Jews changed when the Nazi’s came to power. What were the restrictions and the ways to escape? How many Jews immigrated from Berlin and who stayed in the German capital?
On a virtual visit to the Berlin Jewish museum you’ll see unique artifacts that belonged to the Berliner Jews and learn interesting facts about the community during the Nazi period.
This tour will take you on a virtual walk around the city. You’ll visit the place where 55,000 Berliner Jews were sent to the death camps and see the Memorial of the Murdered Jews of Europe. While walking the central streets, you’ll look down at the sidewalks to find the Stumbling Stones, a fascinating memorial to these murdered Jews. On a virtual visit to the Trains to Life – Trains to Death Monument, the survival story of thousands of Jewish children will be shared.
Finally, the presenter will take you on a virtual tour of the synagogues of modern day Berlin and give you insights into the current status of this Jewish community.
