The Jewish heritage


We collected for the first time in a list the posts of Río Wang written on the Eastern European – and more distant – Jewish cultural heritage when, encouraged by the participants of the first Galician tour guided by us, we announced further excursions to the other sites of the region well known by us. This topic is so comprehensive and the number of the published and planned posts so large, that they already deserve a separate collective post.

We also plan to start here a list of the most important sites and blogs on the Jewish cultural heritage of the region. Any suggestions are welcome.
