Heritage and memory
This tour gives you the highlights of history and culture of the Jewish population in and around Frankfurt.
There is also a memorial and a cemetery from the Middles Ages to visit. An artefact by itself. The 19th century has never been destroyed and is a source of information and history.
In case people want to see special places of there ancestors etc. , I can also do research and put the "family puzzle" together all over Germany due to my contacts to diverse city instituitions, research institutes and scholars. A new highlight is the visit of New Jewish Memorial but can be only seen from outside. The Museum Judengasse / Frankfurt offers a new perspective in the narrative of German Jewish history - let us discover together this exciting experience.

Barbara was a great tour guide for us. She met us on our hotel, showed us to our locations on the public transport system, and was extremely informative throughout our tour. Her English was crazy good and her knowledge was extensive. She was very patient if we wanted to stop for pictures, water, restrooms etc. We found the Jewish history tour very interesting. And know that it was even better since Barbara was our tour guide!
