Every year, in Europe and beyond, 9 November is dedicated to commemorating the victims of the 1938 “Kristallnacht” pogrom and victims of the Holocaust and of fascism throughout history, and to raising awareness about racism, anti-Semitism, right-wing extremism and neo-fascism today.

Walk with our guide Kata Nadas through some Holocaust-related and Jewish sites in town. We will visit the Jewish Quarter - part of the UNESCO World Heritage, and hear the stories and secrets of a once flourishing and now reviving Jewish life. You will also get to know about the (Jewish-related) history of hidden places and buildings you might be passing by every day on your way to CEU.
