Jews have been treated differently in Christian countries for centuries, their politics and living regulated. A notable example of this is Venice’s Jewish Ghetto. This, the Kazimierz, is the other notable example. Not only because it is a Jewish district, but it is one of the few that survived the Second World War though with heavy damages. Due to interest stemming from Spielberg’s film Schindler’s List, it began a second life, blooming into a trendy area with Jewish roots. The Jewish district contains many important buildings of the pre-War Jewish culture. There are synagogues, museums, homes and cemeteries that many Jewish people visit on their cultural pilgrimage. One does not need to visit them all unless one wants to. But do stroll around and absorb the culture. When you’re done with that you can head to the many bars or cafes lining the street or to the numerous shops there. The Jewish district is a happening place, why not join in?
