We at World Jewish Travel are proud to announce the launch of our new virtual Holocaust memorial page, in honor of the International Day of Commemoration for the victims of the Holocaust. For the last few months, World Jewish Travel has curated a wide variety of virtual tours showcasing the broad scope of Jewish world cultural and historical experiences. These tours span the globe with a special focus on Israel and Europe.
Adding Holocaust virtual tours to this list has come at just the right time in the midst of another COVID wave. One of the main pillars of the International Day of Commemoration is connection between the communities of the Jewish world. The solidarity in coming together to mourn and remember. This is near impossible given the current climate. There are virtual tours from over a dozen of the most acclaimed international Holocaust museums and commemoration centers in the world. “Memory in Judaism is a very sacred concept, it is the foundation of Judaism’s survival, knowing where we are going by knowing where we have been. Memory needs to be shared and with these virtual tours and platforms that necessary interaction is still possible” says Jack Gottlieb, the founder of World Jewish
Some of these virtual Holocaust tours include a guided tour of the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, Jerusalem’s Yad Vashem, a panoramic bird’s eye tour of Auschwitz, as well as other museums in Argentina, Poland, the United States, Canada, Australia, and Germany. All these are located on one convenient page on the World Jewish Travel website. There is also plenty of additional and accompanying information about international Jewish heritage including blogs, eBooks, websites, and other virtual events. For more information about this and other virtual tours visit World Jewish Travel at our website or find us on our Facebook page. Also, be sure to check out our Cultural Calendar page for more events both in-person and online.
