Description

The Alter Jüdische Friedhof, the oldest Jewish cemetery in Berlin (1672) destroyed in 1943 by order of the Gestapo, once lay at the end of this road. A stele was erected in 1990 in memory of philosopher Moses Mendelssohn. Nearby the sculpture devoted to the "Jewish victims of fascism" reminds visitors that the former hospice was a transit camp prior to deportation. On the pavement opposite at N°15, Christian Boltanski's Missing House contributes to Berlin's desire to remember the past.
