Jewish Heritage Travel in Croatia
GUIDE TO ABUNDANT JEWISH HISTORY IN CROATIA
Jewish heritage in Croatia is not as abundant like in other European countries that used to have much bigger Jewish communities. Croatia, and Balkans in general, were destinations for Sephardic Jews when they were expelled from Spain. Those people stayed mostly on the coast and moved inland in the Turkish part of the Balkans as Turkey was far more tolerant towards Jews and other religions then the Catholic Europe.
Small communities were started in Split and Dubrovnik but in other towns as well. Those were primary merchant towns and Jewish people had a great opportunity to start their own businesses.
Besides Croatia, Bosnia had a very interesting Jewish history. Unfortunately, Nazis and their allies back in WW2 murdered most of the Jews from former Yugoslavia in the most brutal way. The remaining communities further shrunk during the wars of the 90s.
