Israeli Jewish web designer Nili Shani works next to her cat Mitze at her office in Berlin
Israeli Jewish web designer Nili Shani works next to her cat Mitze at her office in Berlin November 5, 2013. "I came with my ex-girlfriend to Germany. I had many prejudices at the time. When you grow up in Israel you don't think great about Germany. I do now, but at the time there was fear and prejudice, she said. Apart from once, when she felt threatened by members of a motorcycle gang in one Berlin district, she says she feels safe in the multi-cultural, left-leaning district of Kreuzberg. "I wouldn't want to live in an area, where only native Germans live. Maybe I would like it, but I prefer to live in a cultural mixed district. Things have changed a lot in the last 13 years. When I left for Berlin, people would ask, 'what do you want there?' They didn't know Berlin. But today many find Berlin very cool and they come on visits. The image of Berlin has changed a lot for Israelis in the last ten years. What used to be the loathed capital of the Third Reich is now considered a great, open cosmopolitan city. Many Israelis flee from what's happening in the country and Berlin is a good destination'. November 9th marks the 75th anniversary of the 'Kristallnacht' ('crystal night' or also referred to as 'night of broken glass') when Nazi thugs conducted a wave of violent anti-Jewish pogroms on the streets of Berlin and other cities in 1938.
