      About This Berlin Tour

      The fate of Berlin’s once thriving community of Jewish people following the Third Reich was tragic, to say the least. Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party managed to tear families and cities apart. Although a tumultuous history runs deep, Germany’s capital has regained a strong Jewish Community since the National Socialist movement took over.

      A fine example is the New Synagogue, which is located near the Jewish Museum. Peruse at leisure the exhibitions, publications and collections on this museum’s three floors. From exhibitions that shine a light on the lives of Jewish mathematicians to Learning Center presentations, the 166,840-square foot complex presents visitors with a comprehensive understanding of Berlin’s history.

      You can feed your knowledge further on the former premises of the SS headquarters, where the Topography of Terror exhibition is situated. A short distance from the Former Jewish Quarter, it focuses on crimes committed by the Nazi government – crimes that would have affected the people who were laid to rest at the Jewish Cemetery, students at the former Jewish School and Jewish orphans.

      Venture further into the ‘ghetto’ to the Otto-Weidt-Museum, where the blind, dumb and deaf were employed. A seedy underworld once existed in Berlin, but Weidt did his best at giving Jewish people a chance to make a life for themselves, not to mention protecting them from the Nazi Party.

      The Righteous Oddo Weidt

      Born into a working-class family, Oddo Weidt was a highly respected man who gave up his job as a wallpaper hanger when his blindness progressed. As his vision worsened, Weidt decided to open a workshop for the visually impaired. The fact that he wasn’t afraid to fight against Gestapo officials made him fearless and during his life not only did he employ deaf, dumb and blind Jews but also, he rescued a Jewish girl from Auschwitz.
