Uncover the history of Berlin's re-emerging Jewish community, learn about the people that made its greatest impacts, and see the sites that matter. From Moses Mendelssohn to Albert Einstein, Berlin's Jews have been responsible for some of the most significant events in intellectual and cultural development.

See the magnificent New Synagogue, and hear its incredible story, which mirrors the tale of Jews in Berlin before, during, and after Nazi persecution. See where non-Jews risked their lives in order to hide their Jewish neighbors, including the Workshop for the Blind, where one courageous Berliner risked his own life to save those of his Jewish employees. See the site of the ancient Jewish-Cemetry where Mendelssohn is still buried, and acquaint yourself with his significance in philosophy and Jewish history. Walk in the footsteps of working-class Jewish immigrants who dreamed of a better world. Hear the stories of women who aspired to be Rabbis, and the rich who desired poverty.
