Later in the day we’ll go down through the narrow streets, towards the Svisloch River, where we will pass what used to be a Synagogue. Thanks to the efforts of a Jewish architect, it was authentically renovated. But unfortunately, due to the Soviet regime its identity had to remain hidden and was made into a museum.
We will then visit the Jewish community center and a small museum of local Jewish History. We’ll pay our respects at the Yama memorial for the Jews who perished in Minsk during the Nazi occupation. An obelisk was built on the exact spot where five thousand Jews were slaughtered.
After seeing the obelisk, we will enter the Minsk Synagogue and walk around the Minsk ghetto.
The tour will end with a visit to the Jewish Cemetery in Minsk.
