Transcript of Shtetl Routes
All Jewish inhabitants of such places around the East-Central Europe called their towns in this way
You're welcome !
Why "goim" should care about non-existant Jewish towns?
The main goal of the project is to create the cultural tourism trail following the EU Eastern border and to promote the borderland cultural heritage.
Shtetl Routes as a cultural tourism project
In our own interest is to keep alive the memory of the rich history of these sites.
Today, there are no shtetls any more,
but the towns have remained.
The current towns' residents are the unintentional heirs of this heritage in the historical and cultural sense
- Tourist route along the EU border
- Internet portal
- Trainings for tourguides and local cultural creators
We try to search for proper language to talk about the shtetl heritage – as important part of common European heritage
Rethinkig the heritage
In a broader perspective, the project aim is to work out effective and innovative methods of culture-creation work connected with the heritage of shtetls in local communities
is about coexistence, togetherness and a peculiar lab of intercultural
and inter-ethnic relationships.
project starts in Poland, Belarus and Ukraine, but we plan to involve also interested institutions from other countries.
The Lublin Region, as an inspiration and basis for many of the beautiful stories by Isaac Bashevis Singer, the Nobel Prize winning writer,
seems to be the best place to run such a project.
