The history of Lublin’s Jewry is closely connected with the Castle, which sat like an island in the original Jewish Quarter. During WW II it was a prison, whose inmates included Jews found in public places without an armband marked with David’s Star.

Next you will head to possibly the oldest Jewish Cemetery still existing in Poland, the Old Kirkut. You will also see the New Jewish Cemetery and the building of the pre-war Academy of the Lublin Sages (Yeshiva Chachmei Lublin).

Sadly, there is only one synagogue not destroyed during WW II is the Synagogue of the Chevra Nossim Funeral Society (Chewra Nosim).

Afterwards we will head to the extermination camp on the outskirts of the city, in Majdanek. This was the second largest German camp in Europe after Auschwitz and here people of around 50 nationalities were imprisoned.

After the end of the tour, we recommend to see “Lublin. Memory of the Place” exhibition, located in the “Grodzka Gate – NN Theatre” Centre, which shows the multicultural, pre-war Lublin, devoted to Jewish life in Lublin until 1939.
