In the early twentieth century, Berlin had one of the largest Jewish populations of any city in Europe and Jews were well integrated in the fabric of life in the German capital. They occupied prominent positions in government, made essential contributions in the fields of art and science, worked in factories and owned small businesses. Albert Einstein lectured at several Berlin universities and also played violin concerts at the New Synagogue.

This thriving community, and others like it across Europe, would then be ruthlessly destroyed under National Socialism. Jewish culture in Germany became synonymous with sites of Nazi atrocity, with names such as Auschwitz, Treblinka, and Dachau.

On this tour our expert local guides will walk you through areas of Jewish Heritage, sites of Jewish cultural significance, and address in detail the tragedy of the Holocaust – telling the stories of people and places with passion, tact, and respect.
