Berlin's Jewish community's contribution to Jewish and European culture cannot be overestimated. The old Jewish district of Germany's capital had been devasted during the Third Reich, however, today, the Jewish community has experienced a revival and continues to thrive.
In this walking tour, you will discover where some of the old sites including the Old Synagogue once stood. Visit the resting place of the 18th century philosopher Moses Mendelssohn in the Old Cemetery and Otto Weidt's workshop where he helped to save his Jewish workers from deportation to the concentration camps during WWII. See also the new Jewish School and the new New Synagogue which are symbols of the Jewish revival in the community.
