Join the Museum and Our Travel Circle for this live, virtual walking tour of one of Berlin’s oldest neighborhoods. We’ll see the areas where Berlin’s Jewish community once flourished and explore how its tragic history is being memorialized today.

Led by our guide Martin, the tour will begin at the Jewish Boy’s School, then head to the oldest Jewish cemetery in Berlin and the neighboring location of the Jewish retirement home. All three sites were seized by the Nazis. We’ll visit the haunting memorial sculptures by German artist Will Lammert. Next, we’ll see the New Synagogue built in 1866, and from there we’ll finish at Museum Island—a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the heart of the city.

Registration is $18 for Museum members or $36 for the general public. If you’re not a member, join today. If you’re already a member, log in and the member discount will be reflected in your cart.

Live closed captions will be available during this program.
