Join this private walking tour and uncover Budapest’s Jewish culture, a beautiful tapestry dating back centuries, with the community’s contributions visible in the architecture and lifestyle of many places citywide today. Explore the streets of Budapest with your guide to get a comprehensive picture of the roles of the Jews in 19th-century Hungary and identify the causes of 20th-century anti-Semitism culminating in the Holocaust. Explore Budapest’s historic and lively Jewish Quarter with an expert historian who will brief you on the very complex subject of the Hungarian Jewish identity and highlight how and why Jews integrated into Hungarian society over many centuries while explaining the attitudes of the Hungarian majority toward the Jewish population over time. As you walk in the Jewish Quarter, learn more about Jewish lifestyle and customs and also what life was like in the ghetto after the German occupation of 1944-45. Come to understand why the arrival of the Red Army in 1945 is considered a liberation, and not an occupation, by those who survived the deportations. Throughout the tour, as you discover Jewish history and culture in Budapest, unravel the complexities of Jewish life within the city over the centuries.
