During this guided tour we will discover the Jewish cultural heritage of Wroclaw. The trip will commence in the Old Jewish Cemetery which is the eternal rest site for many illustrious people of Wroclaw, Silesia and Europe and displays a beautiful example of Sepulchral art. Our next point of interest is the house of Edith Stein. Originally from Jewish origin, Stein became fascinated with Catholicism and was eventually baptized and entered into the Discalced Carmelite Order. Sadly she died as a martyr of her faith in an Auschwitz gas chamber. In 1998 she was ordained a saint of the Roman Catholic Church as Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross and in 1999 was announced as a patron of Europe by Pope John Paul II. (This part of the tour is optional).

Finally we will visit the old Jewish Quarter including The Synagogue Under the White Stork. This famous synagogue was built in 1829 and survived the terror of the Nazi Kristallnacht in 1938. After the Second World War it was used by Polish Jews until 1968 and was confiscated in 1974 by communist authorities. Regained by the Jewish community in 1996 it is again in use for religious purposes. The Synagogue has also been newly converted into a modern Jewish cultural centre and plays host to beautiful concerts of traditional Jewish music.
