Jewish life around the Synagogue, 3 - hour walking tour
Before Hitler, a third of German Jews lived in Berlin. Lots of traces can be found in the area around the New Synagogue and Hackescher Markt. The visit of the small, most impressive museum of Otto Weidt's Workshop for the Blind shows us where a family was hidden until deportation, the New Synagogue shines with splendour, we'll see the former Jewish Girl's School and Jewish Hospital as well as the oldest Jewish Cemetery with Moses Mendelssohn's tomb stone.
We can also visit the Jewish Museum, a fascinating building by Daniel Libeskind, or the Holocaust Memorial. Find more options for Jewish history in my 6 - hour tour with van, tour # 6381.

As a professor leading a group of university students on a Holocaust Study Trip, Janna was the perfect guide for our group. She was very interactive and constantly asked the students questions, encouraging them to think, wonder, and approach what we were learning critically. In other words, she was as much a teacher as she was a tour guide. In particular, Janna was an excellent guide for the Jewish Museum - we would not have gotten as much out of that visit as we did if we had not gone with her.
