Overview

An important historical tour designed for youngsters where they can join us on a walk around a small section in the Mitte district which many Jews called their home before WWII. Literally meaning the ‘middle’, the Mitte’s cobblestone streets and the architectural elegance of its houses, exude an early 20th century vibe. Mitte suffered from serious damage during the second world war, but the structures were repaired and restored to their former glory

This is a very important tour that retraces Jewish history during Nazi Germany. On this walk youngsters will visit the Neue Synagogue (now Berlin's main Synagogue).  Children will visit a memorial to Otto Weidt (a relatively unknown Hero in comparison to the inspirational Oscar Schindler) who saved blind and deaf Jews by employing them in his factory). The memorial is at the site of the factory.

You will visit  Hackescherhöfe (a courtyard complex that was once owned by a German Jew and is now a listed site).

Included also is the site of the oldest Jewish cemetery in Berlin. Amongst other things you be able to see the ‘Stumbling Stones’ (a Europe-wide project that involved small brass plated cobblestones to commemorate the site of where a victim of the Holocaust either worked or lived).
