The division into two communities, living on two sides of one city lasted till early 19th century. The suburban Jewish district in Lviv was located north to the city walls and was considered an indigent area, and the community there worked mostly in trade and artisanal works. The area of Pidzamcze, Zamarstynów and Kleparów later became a Jewish ghetto during the World War II. Our tour will lead us through these places, where life and death once intertwined. We will see empty squares where magnificent synagogues once stood, like the Tempel or the Grand Synagogue as well as some that still remain, like the former Hasidic Synagogue on St. Theodore square. We will visit the area of former Old Jewish cemetery (nowadays Krahivsky market) and the building of the former Jewish hospital founded by Rappaport. Our tour will end on the monument for the victims of the Jewish Ghetto.
