Berlin enjoys a global reputation as a modern, tolerant and culturally diverse metropolis. Presented under the title “Diversity Destroyed”, the 2013 Berlin Theme Year seeks to communicate the importance and sensitive nature of these democratic values and achievements. The Theme Year will highlight the social and cultural diversity that was destroyed in Berlin under the Nazi regime in the years following 1933. The eightieth anniversary of the Nazi regime’s accession to power on 30 January 1933 and the seventy-fifth anniversary of the November Pogroms are the cornerstones in a year of commemoration, remembrance and active engagement with the past.

Over 120 project partners, the portal exhibition at the German Historical Museum and numerous other events.

As part of the Berlin 2013 theme year “Diversity Destroyed”,  Gesellschaft zur Erforschung des Lebens und Wirkens deutschsprachiger jüdischer Architekten e.V. (Association for Research on the Lives and Works of German-speaking Jewish Architects) organizes the open-air exhibition “Forgotten Jewish Architects”. For this purpose a bilingual app is offered. Historical and current information are shown for 26 stations / buildings by Jewish architects and the architects themselves.

The content is enriched with over 180 photos and zoomable maps (overview maps and detail maps for each station).  All data are available offline (except the online map).
