Virtual Walking Tour: Jewish Ljubljana
From a once thriving community to one of the smallest Jewish communities in Europe today, with just 150 Jewish residents, Slovenia’s Jewish community survived cruel medieval expulsions, the ravages of 20th century war, and subsequent years of socialist rule. Join The Museum of Jewish Heritage and Our Travel Circle for a virtual tour of sites within Ljubljana’s old Jewish Quarter and explore Slovenia’s Jewish history, culture, and heritage.
Tour guide Mateja will discuss Jewish life in a Christian society and talk about the city’s notable Jewish residents. Mateja will also share how some managed to survive WWII, and what happened to the the Jewish community during Communism in Yugoslavia, and she will reveal why Jewish people are now called JUDJE and no longer ŽIDJE.
