We were on a Danube River cruise which docked at Bratislava. I knew there had been a Jewish community there so googled Bratislava Jewish. What a wonderful experience resulted! I met Dr. Maros Borsky, vice-president of the Jewish Community, who gave us a tour of more than three hours. He's REMARKABLE, had created the Jewish Museum himself, catalogued more than a thousand items, had energy, verve, knowledge, and much more. He is the author of 4 books, has lectured at Harvard, has a PhD from Hebrew University in Jerusalem. I think it was the highlight of our trip. I didn't want him to stop talking or to bring us back to the boat!! We went to the old cemetery which has, among many graves, that of Chatam Sofer. The synagogue is active as is the community. If you are planning a Danube River trip, I urge you to think of contacting him. It will be the experience of a lifetime. Many on the boat were envious of our experience when we shared it in the evening. If you want more details, please write.
