Hamburg Walking Tour

Trails of Time

Tamar discovers her grandmother’s diaries who used to live in Hamburg before she emigrated to Israel after World War II. Help Tamar to walk on her grandmother’s trails of time and explore Hamburg’s Jewish Quarter on this walking tour. 

Walking Tour Hamburg - Trails of Time

Tamar was born in Tel Aviv but has never forgotten her roots in Hamburg. Tamar’s grandmother lived in the Grindel district before she emigrated to Israel as a survivor of the heinous persecution of Jews. Tamar’s grandmother never wrote about her experiences in World War II, but her diaries speak volumes… Handwritten entries, hard-to-read notes, old photos and faded sketches. 

Only after her grandmother’s death did Tamar come into possession of her grandmother’s diaries and records, which she has been studying ever since. Unfortunately, Tamar cannot come to Hamburg herself to walk the trails of time of her family’s history. To shed light on the darkness of the past, Tamar needs your help.

Come with us on a historical tour through the Grindel and get to know the former Jewish quarter from its special side. The rally “Trails of Time” takes you past historical monuments and significant Jewish cultural sites. You will learn more about the past and present of the Jewish community in Hamburg, including significant personalities and institutions that still shape community life today.
