HÖRPOL | Audioführung Berlin

Jewish life in two dictatorships
from 1933 to 1989

Free audio guide through
Berlin Mitte and Prenzlauer Berg,
for people from the age of 14.

HÖRPOL is a free audio guide to authentic locations in the Mitte district of Berlin and in the Prenzlauer Berg district. It includes music, audio dramas and reports on yesterday and tomorrow, about Jewish history. A ramble passing fashion shops and music clubs, cafés, and lawns for sunbathing along the banks of the river Spree. Sometimes temper tantrum, sometimes a declaration of love.

Well-known contemporary witnesses, actors, cabaret artists and musicians tell stories about history. They give away secrets, reveal madness and lies, hate, desperation and hope, talk about courage and respect, about freedom. For people from the age of 14.

HÖRPOL has received prizes and awards. Federal President Joachim Gauck, renowned public figures and educational institutions recommend HÖRPOL.
