German Motifs in Bauhaus Buildings
Meeting place: Shulamit Garden, the corner of Yael St. and Shulamit St.
Friday, May 15th, 14:00  
House for reservation
There are Bauhaus buildings in downtown Tel Aviv that still have shutters, ceramic tiles and other elements that were manufactured in Germany in the 1930`s. They made their way here as part of what is known as the Transfer Agreement, which was reached between the Nazi authorities and the Jewish Agency in 1933, with British Mandatory Government approval. Under the agreement, German Jews emigrating to Palestine were allowed to retain some of the value of their property by purchasing German goods that were exported to Palestine through a Zionist company. Upon arrival in the country, the immigrants were paid for the goods they had purchased in Germany, thereby salvaging some of their assets which otherwise would have been confiscated. Many of the goods in question were used in the local construction industry. The 60-minute tour, led by Shlomit Gross from the Bauhaus Center, will trace the use of those materials in buildings in the city.
