Why the Jewish Tour?
The Curiosity which is Estonia
Estonia's University of Tartu was the first university in Czarist Russia to allow Jewish students attendance; in 1927 during its first independence period, Estonia was the first country in Europe to grant its Jewish citizens full cultural autonomy (the only country in Europe at the time to allow such rights to their Jewish minority); Estonia was one of the few East European nations in the 1920s and 1930s where anti-Semitic newspapers and magazines did not find any success.
