Šeduvian Audio Stories Already on our Website

On September 4th, 2021 blue placards were placed around town offering the opportunity to hear short stories about Jews from Šeduva who lived here before the Holocaust. The placards provide QR codes readable by smartphones which call up fifteen unique stories.

Why did a pair of parents disown their son, and why didn't the town's main doctor ever leave home without a revolver? What unexpected visitor used to attend the synagogues located on Šeduva's market square? Why did three Jewish families get baptized? These and many other stories are told in brief by Jewish opera soloist Rafailas Karpis and actress Elžbieta Latėnaitė.

If you don’t have an opportunity to visit Šeduva, now we invite you to listen to these audio stories at the convenience of your home!
