EDJC 2021 > Slovenia > Ljubljana Jewish Stories

Ljubljana Jewish Stories

The Jews lived in Ljubljana in the Middle Ages until their expulsion in 1515. They were allowed to resettle for a short period during the time of the Illyrian provinces. It was not until 1867 that the Austro-Hungarian General Civil Rights Act abolished the restrictions on settlement. During World War II, they were again expelled and interned, and after the war, the Jewish community was re-established. Although the traces left behind by the Jews are unfortunately rare today, they are still noticeable, nonetheless. On the guided tour, we will get to know the stories of the Jewish community and individuals who co-created Ljubljana's economic, cultural and sports activities, and discover hidden corners of Jewish history in the centre of Ljubljana. (Applications to the e-mail address slovenia4u@gmail.com are obligatory; they are accepted until the places are filled. The guided tour, which is free for visitors, is financed by the Slovenian Tourist Board, #mojaslovenija, #ifeelsLOVEnia, www.slovenia.info.)
