“Streets of Kazimierz”: The History of Krakow’s Jewish Quarter
Hosted By: Qesher
For many centuries, Kazimierz was a place where ethnic Polish and Jewish cultures coexisted and intermingled. In 1941, the Jews of Krakow were forcibly relocated by the Nazis into the ghetto and most did not survive the war. Since 1988, a popular annual Jewish Cultural Festival has re-introduced Jewish culture and currently, Krakow is experiencing a rebirth of Jewish life as the local Jewish community grows. Young people are finding out about their Jewish roots, there’s a thriving JCC, and a Jewish preschool has recently opened in the city. Join us to learn about all of this and more!
