Walking Tour of Jewish Berlin with Olga from Wowzitude

From the grandeur of the Hanukkah Menorah near the Brandenburg Gate to intimate local celebrations, you'll witness how Berlin honors the ""Festival of Lights"", symbolizing the resilience and hope of a city that has emerged from a dark past. As we explore the festive sights, our guide will contrast Berlin under Nazi rule to Berlin today - a vibrant, diverse city focused on remembrance, cultural diversity, and building bridges of understanding. We will witness the strong bonds of friendship Berlin has built with the global Jewish community and Israel, encapsulated by Germany's Interior Minister recently articulating that “support for Israel is an essential element of current German policy.” The tour ultimately offers insights into how Berlin commemorates Hanukkah as a commitment to learning from its complex history while moving positively towards a future defined by solidarity.
