On this livestreamed, virtual tour of Vienna’s Jewish Quarter in the second district, we’ll walk the streets and lanes of this fascinating neighborhood as our guide shares insights into its rich Jewish heritage and culture. As we walk, our guide will tell us about the Quarter’s vibrant intellectual and artistic scenes in the late 1800s and early 1900s, including details about the early life of composer Arnold Schoenberg.

In addition, through poignant narratives and historical accounts, gain a deeper understanding of the profound impact of the Holocaust on Vienna’s Jewish Quarter, and how the memories of those dark times are honored and commemorated today, shaping the Quarter’s continued evolution and resilience. Co-presented with Wowzitude.
