During our walking tour on Day 1, we will pass by the Jewish School for Girls in Auguststraße, which was opened in 1930. It was one of the last pre-war buildings on the Berlin Jewish community’s terrain. After it was closed by the National Socialists in 1942 it served as a temporary hospital. The school was used by various Berlin grammar schools from 1950 to 1996. Now it hosts a temporary museum, a restaurant, and a New-York-style deli.
