The German Embassy in Ottawa is taking part in this year's Holocaust Remembrance Month with virtual Jewish walking tours in Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne and – in cooperation with the Embassy of Israel in Canada – in Yad Vashem. The virtual tours will take you live through the different German cities and the Holocaust Memorial in Israel.

Our tour guide in Berlin is Alexander Green. Alexander is German and Jewish and grew up in Hamburg. After he studied German and Hebrew literature at the University of Hamburg he went to Israel in 1993 to work with German speaking Holocaust survivors and decided to immigrate to Israel. In the following years he studied History and Jewish History at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem. He returned to Germany in 2001 and since then has worked in the department of education at the Jewish Museum Berlin. The fascination of Berlin, its past and Jewish history led him to do excursions through the city since 2004.

During the tour you will experience the former Jewish neighborhood in Berlin that nowadays has become an attraction because of its cultural heritage. You are invited to participate with questions and remarks during the live tour.
