      About This Berlin Tour

      There was a time when the people of Berlin believed the Jewish Quarter was finished forever. During the National Socialist movement, any area located outside of this quarter was referred to as “Aryan”. Jewish culture was not tolerated by Adolf Hitler, who destroyed millions of lives during his time as the Nazi Party’s leader. Berlin’s Jewish Cemetery is a reflection of this.

      Weissensee Cemetery is Europe’s second-largest cemetery for Jews. Approximately 115,000 graves are scattered around the land. Take a moment to remember the people who fought Nazism and the victims of concentration camps by inspecting two memorials at the cemetery’s entrance.

      Some of these victims would have attended the Former Jewish Girl School. This school stopped being a place of education when the Nazi’s took power and now, it houses a “Royal Grill”, Museum the Kennedys and Camera Work gallery.

      With its alluring dome-shaped structure and dazzling gold Star of David, the New Synagogue is a proud reminder of how the city’s Jewish Community lived on after the Holocaust. The landmark is a symbol for the German people of Jewish faith, much like Museum Blindenwerkstatt Otto Weidt. Blind and deaf Jews would make brushes and brooms inside Weidt’s workshop.

      Today’s Jewish population in Germany 

      While it may be hard to believe, Germany’s Jewish community is expanding despite the fact the land saw a lot of bloodshed during the National Socialist movement. Since 1988 the country’s Jewish population has tripled, so much so that out of Europe’s Jewish communities, Germany boasts the fourth biggest! The 1990s saw explosive growth, because Jews from the former Soviet Union (FSU) emigrated at this time.
