What you'll do

We’ll walk around the “Jewish” Mitte, recalling stories, visiting places and also tasting flavors associated to the absence and presence of Jewish life in Berlin. We’ll see how the stories of Berlin’s Jews shape the present of the city, being an important key to understand how Germany recreated itself after destroying one of its most important minorities. This experience is not designed as a passive lecture, so I invite you to participate imagining, talking and asking - all the why? and how? you feel asking -, so that you can take your own lessons and thoughts about the stories and interpretations I will share.

Rafael

Hello! My name is Rafael, and I came to Berlin to finish a PhD about German-Jews and other historical minorities. I decided to stay. Here, my research became alive, not only a theoretical object, but a way of comprehending and experiencing the city. I've been teaching, writing, lecturing and guiding about the stories of German speaking Jews for years. So I invite you to walk around Berlin and talk about how Jewish stories intertwine with the history of this city.
