Berlin on Friday

We started our morning visits at the memorial sitefor the Jewish women
who held a protest in 1943 to obtain the release of their husbands.
They succeeded... A rare success in the history of the German
resistance. The day has been cold and blustery, but fortunately no
rain. Our tour guide took us to other Jewish sites: the New Synagogue,
the Jewish cemetery, the Grunewald train station, and finally the
House of the Wannseekonferenz which sealed the fate of the Jews in
January 1942.

This afternoon everyone scattered for one last free visit of the town,
then in a few fours we have our farewell dinner.
