Ljubljana

Jewish Community of Slovenia

Trzaska 2, SI-1000 Ljubljana

The only remaining traces of a prior Jewish presence in Ljubljana are the names of two narrow streets in the city center, Street of the Jews (Zidovska ulica) and Passage of the Jews (Zidovska steza), the place of the medieval ghetto until the 1515 expulsion.

The remains of a neighborhood of about thirty houses have apparently been found beneath the Baroque buildings here, constructed in the seventeenth century atop the medieval foundations.

Additionally, a monument to the victims of the Shoah has been put up in a corner of the municipal cemetery.
