"Germany for the Jewish Traveler"

Read the brochure online or as a download


There is no Jewish community today in the historic city of Weimar. The Weimar Jewish Cemetery was restored in 1983. A few miles from the heart of Weimar lies one of the ugliest sites in German history, the concentration camp of Buchenwald, where some 56,000 victims of the Nazis died from 1937 to 1945. Buchenwald has become a major learning center for Germans young and old. The magnificently designed and curated Buchenwald Museum opened in the early 1990s and is a must for visitors.
