Virtual Tour of Jewish Krakow – WW II and the Holocaust

Hosted By: The Lower East Side Jewish Conservancy (LESJC)

By the end of the 1930s, the Jewish community of Krakow constituted about 25% of the city’s population. Just like everyone else, Jewish Cracovians had their hopes, dreams, ideas and plans for the future. All of those dreams were crushed by the war and the occupation. The streets of the former Krakow ghetto bear witness to the desperate struggle of survival and the destruction of this city’s Jewish community.

Join Olga on this virtual tour to discover the most devastating period of Krakow’s Jewish history. You’ll stroll around the former Jewish Ghetto area and explore the events that resulted in liquidation of what was once a large and vibrant Jewish population. You’ll see the places depicted in Steven Spielberg’s award-winning movie “Schindler’s List”
