The great interest of descendants of Jews formerly living in East Prussia in the history of their ancestors, and the curiosity of the young generation currently living in the Lithuanian, Polish and Russian part of the former region of East Prussia about the earlier Jewish population of East Prussia and their explusion led us, along with friends sharing this interest, to found a society on 5 September 2004 in Berlin with the following name:

Jews in East Prussia. History and Culture Society

 

Das große Interesse, das einerseits Nachfahren von Juden, die seinerzeit in Ostpreussen lebten, an der Geschichte ihrer Vorfahren hegen und die vielen Fragen, die besonders intensiv von der jungen Generation, die heute im litauischen, polnischen und russischen Teil der ehemaligen Region Ostpreussen zur früheren jüdischen Bevölkerung Ostpreussens und auch zu ihrer Vertreibung gestellt werden, hat uns bewogen, gemeinsam mit interssierten Freunden am 5. September 2004 in Berlin einen Verein mit folgendem Namen zu gründen:

Juden in Ostpreussen. Verein zur Geschichte und Kultur e.V.

2016 DEC 18: We are coming to Kaliningrad and talk about Königsberg! more...
We prepare an exhibition on “Jews in Königsberg in the turn of the century”. On the background of the preparation to rebuild the synagogue we will show, how the Jewish society in this town looked like and what kind of activities they organized. The exhibition with the cooperation of the Kaliningrad history museum is planned to be opened in Kaliningrad in 2017.We are looking for photos, documents, letters and postcards to include them into the planned exhibition.
