The MAZEWA / European Heritage Volunteers Project "Innovative interpretation of Jewish cultural heritage" started off on Monday. Twelve participants from eleven different countries explored the Jewish cemetery of Zittau for the first time. Using sticky notes, they marked spots that sparked their interest or that they had questions about.
On Tuesday, they went on a scavenger hunt through the city, discovering how Jewish lives and businesses were woven into the city's fabric. This already led to many encounters with locals and the participants came back full of stories and even more questions.
Excited to see this project unfold - the next days are filled with workshops!
