Finding lifelines. Preserving memories.

Various traces of the Jewish citizens of Berlin from the 19th and 20th centuries can still be found for geneological research. Especially in the business and personal files of numerous archives and in the Jewish and non-Jewish cemeteries of Berlin:

  • Are there documents documenting the Nazi persecution of German Jews?
  • Do original documents and photos of their businesses or places of residence still exist?
  • What did the Kiez (neighbourhood) look like in which the Jewish-German families lived? At which central places did the people meet? What is it like there today?
  • Is there still a grave in the Jewish cemetery in Weißensee or in one of the many other Berlin cemeteries that indicate Jewish origin?

I would like to answer these and other questions in an individually designed chronicle for you, which will show your German-Jewish origin.

What does Avudim Berlin mean?

Avudim is a Hebrew word and can be translated as “something or someone is lost forever”. In my company, the word stands for the irretrievable loss of people through their disenfranchisement, expulsion and murder during the National Socialist era. It stands for the decline of a unique German-Jewish culture.

At the end of Avudim Berlin, though, is the Hebrew חי Chai- The people of Israel are alive.
