The Unexpected Arrivals: Soviet Jews in West Berlin

Hosted By: The National Library of Israel (NLI)

Sparking an almost unknown chapter in contemporary Jewish, German, and international history, several hundred Soviet Jews unexpectedly arrived in West Berlin in the early 1970s.
They had not only asserted their freedom, but had also selected a startling place to settle – West Berlin, the former capital of the Nazi regime long vilified by Moscow and its Warsaw Pact allies.
Surprised and ill-prepared, the West Berlin and West German governments wavered between welcome and expulsion of the mostly illegal arrivals.
