Johnny Depp and Amber Heard looked totally in sync when they both stepped out in stripes in Berlin on Saturday. Joining Depp, 50, and his former Rum Diary costar, 27, were Depp’s two children from his relationship with Vanessa Paradis : Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 11, who accompanied the pair to the Neues and Pergamon Museums. Depp has been touring overseas to promote The Lone Ranger. But while the film has been panned by critics , the actor appeared unaffected and even cheerful as he held hands with his sweetheart.
In its heyday at the beginning of the 20th century, the Jewish community of Berlin was at its height of prestige and by 1933 over 160,000 Jews lived here. Reform Judaism, Zionism and numerous important Jewish figures including Albert Einstein, philosopher Martin Buber, artists Max Liebermann and Lesser Ury, composers Arnold Schoenberg and Kurt Weill, Chabad leader http://wallinside.com/post-4409990-if-you-know-someone-living-in-united-states-while-you-are-in-the-taiwan-it-is-possible-to-call-the-.html Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson, author Shai Agnon, conductors Otto Klemperer and Bruno Walter, and film director Billy Wilder, all called Berlin home prior to 1933. Immediately following the fall of the Nazi regime, Berlin Jewry, which now numbered only 5,000, began to rebuild. Within three sites days after Germanys surrender, prayer services were held in the new Jewish cemetery in Weissensee. Most of Berlin Jewry settled in West Berlin, but after the fall of the wall in 1989, west Berlin was reunited with the few Jews who had lived in east Germany and an ever-growing trickle of Jews formerly under the Soviets began to immigrate to the newly united Berlin. Currently there are over 20,000 Jewish residents of the city with numerous synagogues, cultural institutions, restaurants and Jewish community centers serving them and the many Jewish travelers who visit here.
