Exploring the Fascinating History and Culture of Venice’s Jewish Community

The Museum of Jewish Heritage - A Living Memorial to the Holocaust

Date: Apr 02nd

The winding streets and canals of Venice are unparalleled, as is the city’s rich history as one of the oldest Jewish ghettos in the world. Dating back to 1516, the Venetian Ghetto served as a model for other Jewish ghettos worldwide. On this livestreamed virtual tour, learn about the momentous history of the neighborhood, from Napoleon’s march on Venice in 1797 to the Nazi occupation of the city in 1943. Tourists will also talk about the first production of Shakespeare’s Merchant of Venice and the antisemitic themes present in the play.
