Three cities: one story. Traces of Jewish heritage in Bochnia, Nowy Wiśnicz and Brzesko
Tour date: Friday 7 September, 14:00
The Jewish community in Bochnia was established in the 15th century. Jews lived there till the beginning of 17th century, when they were expelled following false accusations of Host desecration. Then the town got de non tolerandis Judeis status . The owner of nearby town of Nowy Wiśnicz decided to invite the expelled community, and grant their rights.The situation had changed under Austrian rule, when Jews became equal citizens of Austrian-Hungarian Empire, and those who lived in Nowy Wiśnicz started to settle back in Bochnia. The presence of the Jews in Brzesko dates back to 14th century, but the community developed about three hundred years later, when Jews from nearby Bochnia were expelled. Today it is one of the few towns in Poland where one can find preserved buildings of former mikveh and synagogues, and a Jewish cemetery.
