The end of the 15th century marked the end of a peaceful way of life for one nation. The fall of Grenada in 1492 commenced a period of persecution for Jews living in Spain and Portugal.
Learn how Sarajevans came to accept their new neighbors, Sephardic Jews, in the 16th century and what life was like in Sijavuš Pasha’s Mahala (Jewish Quarter).
The tour will provide answers to questions about how Sarajevo’s Jews made their living, what kinds of songs they sang, the culinary specialties they prepared, as well as a bit about the Ladino language. You’ll also hear stories about Sarajevo’s Sephardic and Ashkenazi Jewish communities – their lives, joys, suffering, persecution, their eternal resting places and even the places where they defied death and this earthly transience.
You will also have a chance to see copy of Haggadah, priceless masterpiece of medieval Judaica, while original is kept at the National Museum BiH.
Note: There must be at least two individuals for the tour to be given and reservations are required 24 hours in advance. The cost of the tour includes transport and admission to the Museums.
Recommendation: wear comfortable shoes and bring along some water and a camera.
