Minsk – 16 May 2012

I am met at the Planeta Hotel by my guide, Alla Levina at 10am.

Driven around by Spartak

Our first stop is the Jewish Community Centre. We are shown around by Vadim Akopyan, the Director. We see the museum and the activities in the centre.



We visit the Beith Israel Synagogue



Next is the Central Synagogue, run by Chabad, Rabbi Shneor Deutsch. This is an impressive Chabad shul.



The ghetto area



The Pit and other memorials to the Jews, including the Hamburg Jews



Originally the Choral Synagogue. Some Hebrew letters on the side of the building.



Other buildings and statues in Minsk




The views in Upper Town



The train to Vilnius and my companions
