Illustration of the History of Jews in the Former Russian Capital


Dive into the kaleidoscope of events of Jewish people history from the beginning of the XVIII century up to the nowdays time. During the Imperial period of Russian history whoever had been successfull in the throne of the Russian Empire found it necessary to change the attitude towards Jews, from the loyalty of Peter I to the severe repressions of his daughter Elizabeth, from the beginning of the legal immigration while Catherine II ruling to drastic changes in the time of her grandson Nicolas I etc. Of course there are the places illustrating Jews persecution while anti-Semitist policy of Joseph Stalin's government and further on. Luckily the Great Choral Synagogue has never been closed down and even functioned throughout the World War II. Definitely visiting It will be included into the tour. There is a number of places we are going to visit connected with the life time of the most outstanding Jewish figures who lived and studied in the city and had become the glory of Russia and not only.
