Overview
This a Jewish Heritage walking tour in Thessaloniki's city centre, where the main Jewish community used to live and work for centuries. Although not much of the old buildings is nowadays preserved in this neighbourhood, due to the terrible fire of 1917 and the World War II distructions, the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki has tried to show and renovate the main sites related to the Jewish Heritage. This tour can be done in the mornings only, when the sites are open until 14.00 - not on Saturdays. A longer tour can also be arranged out of the city centre upon request by private transportation to see the east-side of the city with the old Jewish villas of the early 20th century, the new Jewish cemetery on the west-end and also the old railway station, known for the Holocaust deportation of 50.000 Jews by the Nazis by trains.
