Back by popular demand, join us for a tour focusing on the history of the Jews of Germany, led by Paul Forgasz. Journey back in time from the earliest presence of Jews in Roman times, the highs and lows of the medieval Jewish experience, the birth of the Haskala – the Jewish Enlightenment, the encounter with the modern world during the 19th and early 20th centuries which transformed the face of Judaism and Jewish life, the dark years of the Nazi period, to the more recent revival of Jewish life in Germany. This tour will challenge, move and inspire you to consider the many facets and compelling history of Jews in Germany.
