Jews first arrived in medieval Berlin in the 13th century, when the city was still a provincial town along the swampy lands of the river Spree. Led by a local historian, this conversation explores the triumphs and sorrows of Jewish thinkers, artists, public figures, and common people who have long called this Berlin home.

We will explore Jewish presence in Berlin, discussing important historical moments before, during, and after the Nazi era. Over the course of several hundred years, Berlin went from having a virtually non-existent Jewish population to being one of the most important centers of Jewish life in Europe before following a deeply antisemitic path around the end of World War One. We will discuss this extraordinary historical change as well as important figures who shaped Berlin's Jewish community from Moses Mendelssohn to Leo Baeck. We will then ask how their influence and this history continues to impact the Jewish community of Berlin today.

Led by historian John Owen, this interactive seminar will leave you with profound insight into what it was and what it is to be Jewish in Berlin, and the resilience of this community.

This conversation is suitable for all ages.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

a lovely experience

This young man has a wealth of knowledge and presents his topic in a very empathic and thoughtful manner. He answered all questions thrown at him without demeaning the questioner. I would definately take another tour with John

Always well done, always a chance to ask lots of questions. And John (and the other presenters) never assume you already know the background but also don't talk down to you.
