Description

This tour shows the development of the well-known Prague Jewish community from the time of the Enlightenment at the end of the 18th century, their advancement in industry, art and literature and finally also in the civil service, their large part in the development of Bohemia into an industrial superpower, the training of the Prague Zionism in the face of growing anti-Semitism towards the end of the 19th century and its fate after 1938, the occupation by Nazi Germany. One of the main themes is the phenomenon of Prague German literature, a unique development in a language island that produced world-renowned writers in the early 20th century who are largely forgotten today. The only exceptions are e.g. Kafka, Werfel, Kisch or Brod.
