Heritage tourism has boomed in the last half century, especially in older industrial cities such as Kiev, Berlin, Bucharest, Krakow, London and New York. Jews, often rediscovering their family’s traumatic pasts marked by the Holocaust, have become a vital component of this burgeoning heritage industry.

Daniel Walkowitz invites readers to join him on his travels. Part family saga and part tour guide, this is a deeply personal analysis of Jewish history as told in public history – museums, heritage sites, memorials – that illustrate what is being remembered, what memorialised, what forgotten, and what ignored.


Daniel Walkowitz is emeritus professor of history and of social and cultural analysis at New York University. An influential labor and urban historian, his many books include City Folk: English Country Dance and Politics of the Folk in America.

Rebecca Taylor is the editor of Jewish Renaissance magazine. She has interviewed everyone from David Cameron to Jesse Jackson in a career that started at the Japan Times in Tokyo. She went on to work at The Guardian and as News Editor for Time Out London before taking up her role at JR in 2014.
