  • Kazimierz Unseen: An Alternative Tour of Krakow’s Former Jewish Quarter

At first glance, Krakow’s district of Kazimierz feels like a hipster paradise: trendy bars, quaint cafés, and popular restaurants sit among the ruins of Kazimierz’s Jewish past. But there’s an invisible Kazimierz as well, full of magnificent and tragic history, and a present complicated by gentrification, mass tourism, and questionable representations of Jewish culture. FestivALT co-directors Michael Rubenfeld and Adam Schorin take you on a live, virtual, critical tour that will open the door to some of Kazimierz’s hidden narratives and encourage you to see beyond the visible exterior.

Written and performed by Michael Rubenfeld and Adam Schorin.
Music and sound by Alex Roth. 
Videography by Patryk Dróżdż.

Commissioned and produced by FestivALT

Tour length: 45 minutes + discussion

ATTENDANCE IS FREE BUT PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER
