Overview
What to Expect
This insider look by the local litvak is a 3-hour walking tour around the two Vilnius ghettos. We will follow the traces of Jewish culture in the old town where the Great synagogue was built and Gaon of Vilnius used to live. You will hear a story about the manifesto and the fight of Jewish partisans. We shall also walk into the Choral synagogue, and explore a very old mazzes making machine there. This tour will give you a good feeling what life was like in Vilnius before WWII and what role the Jewish population had in this city and beyond.
