Virtual Walking Tour: Jewish Prague
Hosted By: The Museum of Jewish Heritage-- A Living Memorial to the Holocaust
Join the Museum and Our Travel Circle as we explore the historic Jewish community of Prague, in the Czech Republic.
On this live, virtual walking tour, we’ll learn the history of the Jewish community in Bohemia since the 10th century with our guide Nikola. We’ll visit several synagogues: the Maisel Synagogue, the Pinkas Synagogue, and the Old New Synagogue—Europe’s oldest synagogue still in use.
The tour will explore the impact of World War II and the German annexation of Czechoslovakia through the Stolpersteine (stumbling stones) and the Terezin Ghetto. Learn the story of Nicholas Winton, the British businessman who saved 669 children with his rescue mission. And finally, we’ll hear the story of the American ambassador’s residence in Prague—the spectacular Petschka Palace.
Registration is $18 for Museum members or $36 for the general public. If you’re not a member, join today.
