Conference 17 - 19 October 2009
Transforming Berlin's Urban Space – East European Jewish Migrants in Charlottengrad and the Scheunenviertel, 1918-1939
Since the end of the 19th century, Berlin had been a staging post and a refuge to Jews from Eastern Europe. The migrants settled mainly in Charlottengrad and the Scheunenviertel, making the German capital a center for Jewish culture and at the same time a multicultural cityscape. Their experiences, their perceptions, and their survival strategies in the city are the focus of the conference.
Simultaneous interpretation of the conference proceedings into German, English, and Russian will be available.
