      A pleasant walk through the Jewish part of Vienna. The history of the Jews in Vienna was considered. However, I missed the part about the Second World War. In my opinion, that was avoided somewhat. While a lot has happened in that period, what needs to be told. A bit disappointed in terms of thought. Many old Jewish buildings are no longer there. The guide makes up for that with old photos. Nice guide. Her German is very intelligible for non-German speakers.
