This cemetery, the oldest Jewish Cemetery of Berlin, was completely destroyed by the Nazis in 1943. After the war the cemetery was partly reconstructed. Normally the cemetery is closed and it is only possible to visit it with a guide. There are some famous graves but there is not much to see.

In front of the cemetery is a nice memorial for the Jewish Boys’ School. On 30 June 1942, the buildings of the Jewish boys’ school and the neighboring old people’s home were seized by the Gestapo and turned into an infamous assembly and transit camp.

The Holocaust and what Jews had to live during that time is a key to understanding and knowing Berlin. This memorial and it's neighborhood are an important part of that historical disaster and, therefore, are worth visiting. However, I recommend doing it with a guide, otherwise it won't be truly appreciated.

You have to go with a guide to understand, but if you make it to this cemetary you'll be able to see the grave of Moses Mendelson.
