Lublin

Former Jewish District and the area of the ghetto (3 hours)

The oldest mention of the Jewish settlement in Lublin dates back to the 14th c. The Jewish city flourished for centuries around the royal castle and the Old Town, the center of today’s Lublin. During WWII Nazis deported most of Lublin’s Jewish inhabitants to Bełżec death camp and later on destroyed the majority of the district. The tour around the former Jewish district of Lublin is a walk in a non-existent city with some traces of memory, and only a little of its surviving material heritage.
