We will start our Wroclaw tour in front of 30 Rynek Square. From this central point, we will take a walk until we enter one of the areas of the city with more history to discover: the Jewish quarter.
First of all, we will stop at the White Stork Synagogue. Do you know why it is called that? We will reveal it while admiring its imposing façade. The temple is also related to one of the darkest episodes of the beginning of Nazism: the Night of Broken Glass. Interestingly, there is a powerful reason why the synagogue was saved from burning that tragic morning…
We will continue our free tour through one of the most striking sculptural ensembles in Wroclaw: the so-called “transitional sculptures” (Przejście, in Polish). It is about a group of human figures that are literally sinking under the sidewalk. What did the artist intend with this particular work? For now, we will only reveal that the sculptures try to honour the citizens of Wroclaw during the Iron Curtain era.
After knowing other extraordinary stories and curiosities about how people lived in the city in the years after World War II, we will finish the tour in the most central streets of the Jewish quarter of Wroclaw.
