Day 9, Friday, May 18

Nemirov is one of the oldest towns in what is now Ukraine and was established probably as a Jewish settlement at the time when Lithuanian princes ruled there at the end of the 14th century or before. By the 17th century, it became one of the centers of Jewish traditional and cabbalistic scholarship and a major hub of economic life in Medieval Poland. In 1648, during the Khmelnitsky-led mutiny of Orthodox Cossacks against their Catholic Polish overlords, the town was the site of their first large-scale massacre of Jews (more than half of Polish Jews were murdered during 1648-1654); it stands at the beginning of the modern Jewish history.
