Your focus for this 3-hour history tour will be the main sites of Berlin’s 19th and 20th century Jewish history and the districts of Spandauer Vorstadt and Scheunenviertel (known as the ‘Barn Quarter’) in Berlin-Mitte. Take in the graceful avenue Oranienburger Straße, where the magnificent New Synagoge was erected in 1866. Learn not only of the conflicts between German Jews and Non-Jews but of tensions between the mostly assimilated German Jewry and the so-called Eastern Jews (‘Ostjuden’) who filled Berlin in the 1920s after fleeing anti-Jewish violence in their homelands.
