Germany for the Jewish Traveler

Even though we are decades removed from World War II, the crimes committed against the Jewish People during the Nazi regime retain a singular identity in the annals of horror. Today’s Germany is home to the third-largest Jewish community in Western Europe, indeed the only European Jewish community that is growing rather than shrinking.

Visiting today’s Germany is a lesson in how a nation has sought to come to terms with a devastating legacy. After the war, a dedicated number of Germans were at the forefront of a movement to begin the long road, not only of atonement and redress, but towards the building of a new Germany. It is in this spirit that we are honored to convey a special invitation to the Jews of the world to visit our country. As we do so, it would be naïve not to recognize that for many, contemplating a visit to Germany may never be without a mixture of emotions.

the ubiquitous memorial.

Stolpersteine are bronze plaques about six inches square outside the homes of Jews and others deported during the Third Reich. Each tells the story of what happened to an individual.

They are the brainchild of Cologne-based artist Gunter Demnig who began the project in 1997, citing the Talmud’s declaration that "a person is only forgotten when his or her name is forgotten."
