Exploring Dark Tourism: A Jewish Traveler's Journey

Dark tourism has increasingly attracted those with a curiosity for history, a desire to understand past sufferings, and a need to pay tribute to those who endured them. As a form of travel that takes visitors to sites of tragedy, dark tourism plays a significant role in Jewish cultural travel. These journeys help to preserve collective memory, recount resilience, and teach enduring lessons that stem from the darkest chapters of Jewish history. World Jewish Travel offers Jewish cultural travelers the opportunity to engage with history authentically and intimately through its Dark Tourism page, featuring destinations where visitors can explore important historical sites, memorials, museums, and tours such as a 7-Day Portugal Jewish tour, a Spanish Inquisition & Madrid Tour, the Anne Frank House, and recent additions from Black Saturday such as Hostages Square and a private tour of the Sderot, the Nova Festival Site, and the Gaza Envelope.

Tips to Visit Anne Frank House, Amsterdam

A visit to Anne Frank House is usually at the top of people’s list when traveling to Amsterdam. The Anne Frank House Museum in central Amsterdam is a haunting yet beautiful house that is home to the diary that Anne wrote during her long days in hiding. For an authentic, subdued experience that is historical and eye-opening this tribute to the family and people who hid from the Nazis during the Second World War is not to be missed.
