Prague. Where Jews Cannot Walk. Prikopy; Narodny Ave.

Places of no access for Jews

Prikopy.

Jews are not allowed to walk here. Page 110. This now is the pedestrian way at the lower end of Wenceslas Square. See www.radio.cz/en/article/60725. A place for shopping, and you can choose a walking tour focusing on that. See www.accommodation.cz/t/sight.html

Narodny Avenue.

Jews cannot walk here, either. Page 111. Take a long detour to a tunnel that goes under it in order to get places. Page 114. Fast forward to August 15, 1969, and the "human barricade of Czech militia" at Narodny Street. Read back at the struggles 1938 against Nazis, 1948 against soviet union, and 1968ff again.
