Jewish Regensburg Uncovered Tour

Take this Jewish Regensburg virtual tour to literally uncover the fascinating history of the Regensburg Jews. Natzis wiped out the once-vibrant community. But Eastern European Jews re-established it after WWII. Why and who were they? These days, it boasts a beautiful synagogue, a historic cemetery, and quite a lot of medieval artifacts. The historians and archeologists uncovered the Jewish heritage indeed.

With the first written record going back to the 9th century, the Regensburg Jewish community was one of the oldest in Central Europe. What attracted the Jews to the city? Why didn’t the rulers expel the Jews from Regensburg during the Black Death? The Jewish Regensburg Uncovered virtual tour will take you to the former Jewish quarter, where you’ll learn about the old synagogue and the schule. You’ll also uncover fascinating migration routes and cultural connections between Regensburg and Krakow Jews in the early modern period. A visit to the old Gothic house turned synagogue will take you back to the early modern period when the community was re-established.

Finally, you’ll explore the eventful and tragic first half of the 20th century. You’ll learn what happened to the New Synagogue, how the community survived the Crystal Night pogrom, and the story of the stumbling stones. You’ll also visit the forced laborers’ memorial.
