On the occasion of the World Tourist Guide Day on February 21, Ruth Leiserowitz gave a lecture on “Jewish merchants, their goods and business in Königsberg and the region” at the Museum New Synagogue Kaliningrad.

Her richly illustrated remarks focused in particular on trade in the 19th century. The very well-attended event, whose audience was mainly made up of travel guides, was at the same time the start of a monthly series of lectures at the museum, as Julia Oisboit, director of the museum explained in her introduction.
