Interactive Map of Jewish Cultural Heritage in Lithuania #lithuania

Jewish Heritage Lithuania has created an interactive map of the Jewish cultural heritage in Lithuania.

 

The map now has more than 200 hotspots that offer information and images about Jewish shtetls and communities, surviving brick and wooden synagogues and other communal buildings, and places associated with famous Litvaks.

 

The purpose of the map is to encourage travel around Lithuania.

 

An English version of the map is planned to be launched by the end of summer. I was able to list English as chosen language in the drop down box and the  sites I clicked on were translated into English.  I also used Chrome as my browser.

 

The map was developed as part of an EU co-funded project.
