"Finding Our Place in History" workshop

Last weekend (1-3 June) the Alexander Haus helped facilitate a youth seminar and 'happening' at the Lake House. 

In association with UK-German Connections (a collaboration between the UK and German governments), 25 students from the UK and 25 students from Germany participated in a thee-day seminar: 'finding our place in history'.

They visited the house and the Berlin Wall memorial at Groß Glienicke See, took part in a Shabbat celebration, and shared stories and thoughtful reflections on "The House By The Lake" and the history of the 20th Century. 

It was a deeply moving and inspiring weekend - a melting pot of history, identity and reconciliation.
