Virtual Journey Through Poland with Yad Vashem Day 1: Exploration of Prewar Jewish Life & the Krakow Ghetto
To understand what was lost in the Holocaust, we need to know what existed before. Who were the Jews of Europe before WWII? We will explore the prewar lives of six teenagers from different countries, expressed in their own words through diary entries and other primary and secondary source material. This glimpse into their worlds will allow us to deepen our understanding of the diversity of prewar Jewish life. This session will be followed by a virtual guided tour of the area of the Krakow Ghetto, by the Galicia Jewish Museum.
