Join us on virtual, livestreamed walking tour of Nuremberg to explore the interesting, yet devastating history of the city’s Jewish community, which was once the second largest Jewish community in Bavaria. We will start with a stroll in the Old Town, where we’ll uncover traces of the medieval Jewish community, including stones from the old Jewish cemetery. You’ll learn why the Star of David marks the floor of Nuremberg’s most important church and how the community was reestablished following the Black Death. Finally, we’ll move forward in time to the devastation of the 20th century. We’ll visit the Nazi Party Rally Grounds and learn about the Nuremberg laws, along with memorials that honor the community that was wiped out and symbolize modern day Nuremberg’s preservation of its history. Co-presented with Wowzitude.
