Walking Tour: Colonialism and Anticolonialism in Berlin

Walking Tour: Colonialism and Anticolonialism in Berlin

We are offering walking tours with social distancing — see our safety protocols below. ##
Germany isn't well know as a colonial empire. But in just a few decades at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, the Kaiser's troops massacred hundreds of thousands of people across Africa and Asia.
Right now, statues of slave traders, racists, and colonialists are being toppled all over the world. Berlin is full of reminders of the city's colonial past. In our (Anti)Colonialism tour, we look for signs of oppression and resistance.
We will cover:
– the beginning of the Brandenburg slave trade
– the division of Africa at the Berlin Conference
- anticolonial resistance in Weimar and the GDR
– the racist history of Berlin’s “African quarter”
– today’s struggles to change colonial street names
If you would like to take part, please send an e-mail with your name, e-mail address, and the date of the tour to: revolutionaryberlin@gmail.com
Our tour will be meeting in front of the Akademie der Künste at Pariser Platz. That is opposite the Brandenburg Gate and next to the Hotel Adlon (S-Bhf Brandenburger Tor). We will meet at 18:00 and leave by 18:10.
Our tour will be ending two hours later at U-Bhf Rehberge in Wedding. We will take the U6 and you will need an AB ticket (please get that beforehand).
Suggested donation is 10 euros per person, but any contribution is appreciated.
The tour is in English and lasts approximately two hours. A ticket for the subway (Berlin AB) is needed. We will keep a list of the full name and e-mail address of everyone who participates for four weeks, in case any chains of infection need to be traced.
+++ Safety protocols +++
- tour groups will be limited to 20 people.
- our guides will use a plastic face visor and a small loudspeaker.
- our guests are asked to use nose and mouth masks at stops and on the train.
- guests will need to register with their full names and e-mail addresses in case we need to track a chain of infection.
- there will be no handshakes or handouts during the tour.
- donations at the end of the tour can be dropped into a bag held at arms length. Please bring exact change. Electronic donations are not possible at this time.
