Jewish life in Weimar

The first traces of Jewish life in Weimar can be traced back to the 14th century. In the centuries that followed, Jewish life in Weimar existed between oppression and development. The freedoms of the Jewish citizens, as far as they were allowed to call themselves Jewish, were always restricted. Despite this, a Jewish culture developed in Weimar over the centuries, the traces of which are followed in this city tour. It was not only with the Shoah that the Jews in Weimar had to endure setbacks threatening their existence, including expulsion or even death; even before that there were tendencies critical of or hostile to Jews, but also times of cultural flourishing. Where can these marks of almost 700 years of Jewish life in Weimar be located? This question will be explored in this two-hour city walk, which is limited to the easily accessible places in Weimar's old town.
