Jewish Life in Kantstraße

A Tour for Friends of the Jewish Museum Berlin

Outside in the fresh air is the best place to be in spring, and so we would like to invite you to a tour exploring Charlottenburg. Built in the 1890s, Kantstraße was a preferred residential area of the upper-middle class, above all a street of musicians, painters, sculptors, actors, and writers.

Jewish life was also well established, as many Eastern European Jews settled there at the beginning of the twentieth century. So there is much to tell not only about the central Jewish organizations found at number 158, or a private synagogue at number 125, but also about the many artists and scholars who lived in Kantstrasse, or about the fate of some Jewish doctors who were among the city's first doctors.

We look forward to a guided tour with Birgit Jochens, historian, long-standing Director of the Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf Museum and author of the recently published book Die Kantstraße. Vom preußischen Charlottenburg zur Berliner City West (Kantstraße. From Prussian Charlottenburg to Berlin City West).
