Overnight Stay


On the way to Northern Italy, we have stopped in a European city. Can you guess where it is?

The previous post might help. Here is another clue: August 1897.

The Judaica above was photographed this evening in the shop window of an antique dealer next to our hotel.

  1. Sounds like a fun trip! I also loved the Swiss souvenir shop in the last post- I’d love to poke around there (and see Switzerland, of course!).

  2. Easy…

    Basel. They have an excellent Jewish bookstore for German-language books (Goldschmidt) and host the leading religious German-speaking Jewish publishers (Morascha-Verlag)

    Have a good and safe trip.

  3. That’s very interesting that the Judaica is being sold in a regular antique dealer. I imagine that those menorahs have a fascinating history.

    Enjoy your vacation!

  4. 1897 – World Zionist Congress
    I’ve been working on the online course for the History of Zionism too long. These dates float around in my head. It’s soon going public.

  5. A lovely shop window image. Switzerland is a beautiful country. I went to Zurich several years ago on a day trip while visiting my sister in Germany, and also when I was 13 I went to Montreux with my school for a couple of weeks. Great memories!
