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 this
needs to be booked in advance - it is located in the building of the ECB (security reasons). The new Historical Museum of Frankfurt offers a new perspective in the narrative of German Jewish history - let us discover together this exciting experience.

I was born in Frankfurt although I left it at the age of 3. Barbara was an excellent source and guide for this wonderful city, taking an interest in our background and preferences so as to tailor the tour to our specific needs. The level of detail was wonderful, allowing me to visit the street where I lived, the hospital where I was born and areas of particular interest to me. Barbara is flexible and accommodating to any reasonable preference and I would gladly use her again.
