Inside Heschel High

Sophomores Travel to Vienna

Nine sophomores traveled through Vienna, Austria, immersing themselves in a very different kind of Jewish culture than the one they experience in New York. Students visited the old Jewish quarter of the city, palaces, and several museums celebrating the art and music of the city. The group spent one day at the Mauthausen concentration camp memorial outside the city, and they met with Viennese Holocaust survivors as well. The Heschel students also formed meaningful connections with fellow sophomores at Zwi Perez Chajes School, a Jewish day school in Vienna, who visited New York City earlier this month.
