Jewish (Hi)stories in Prenzlauer Berg
an audio tour

“I dreamed of home almost every night.”

– These are the first words of the interview in which Simon Mandel describes his childhood in Prenzlauer Berg before World War II. The audio app tells the story of several Jewish inhabitants of the area around Kollwitzplatz in the 1920s and 1930s, spread out between 19 audio points. Their stories reflect everyday life on the streets of Prenzlauer Berg, family life, experiences at school, as well as the increasingly anti-Jewish mood of the city.

How to use the app


The app is available for Android devices and can be downloaded for free on Google Play.


Start the app when you are within the tour area on the map. To do this, you will need to activate the GPS function of your device. You will also need an Internet data connection.

For better positioning, we recommend that you deactivate Google location services (Wi-Fi and mobile network).
You can start the tour on the grounds of the Museum Pankow (Prenzlauer Allee 227/228) with a short historical introduction. You are free to choose the order of the audio points yourself.


You can use the map to find the audio points. The audio files will start automatically. Alternatively, you can download them manually from the website as MP3 files.
