A Visitor’s Guide to Lublin

By Batya Dvir and Alex Dancyg

Historically, the city of Lublin served as a political and economic center for Poles and a social and Torah-study for Jews. Lublin is surrounded by other cities, which were established to serve as district centers for groups of smaller towns and villages. The Lublin visitor’s guide presents the region’s fascinating Jewish history and its unique treatment and ultimate fate under Nazi rule, when it was selected as the first site of implementation of the “solution to the Jewish problem.” For the sake of purifying the Third Reich, tens of thousands of Jews from the territory of the expanded Reich and the satellite state of independent Slovakia were expelled to Lublin. In the Lublin area, the Nazis established large and small forced labor camps under the policy of exploiting Jewish labor. It was also there that they established the first extermination camps. This guidebook provides visitors with detailed tour routes, including maps, diagrams, and photographs.        

 

The book is divided into three sections:

Section I: Lublin

Section II: Tour Routes and the Lublin Area

Section III: The Lublin District during the War

 

Price: NIS 60

** Special discounted price for authorized Poland tour-guides: NIS 35 **

The visitor’s guide is available in Hebrew and will soon be available in English and Spanish.

 

For a great value, purchase all three guidebooks for just NIS 150!
