When pictures tell stories, history becomes personal - and touching. Since the beginning of the project 'Jewish Witnesses of a European Century' in 2000, Centropa has digitized more than 1250 life stories and conducted numerous interviews. To tell the touching story of Tosia Silberring, a progressive web application was developed and implemented as a city tour together with Centropa Team Vienna. The tour starts at the Galicia Jewish Museum in Krakow. Visitors are invited to install the app on their cell phones, which means the museum does not need multimedia guides on site. The app's content, interviews, rare photos, and written documents are currently available in four languages and can be accessed directly by entering a number in the museum. After spending time in the museum, visitors are encouraged to visit the historical places from Tosia's stories in Krakow. A 2D map showing all the stops on the tour in the app serves as a guide. In addition, the Centropa team can edit the content of the application itself using NOUS Conductor CMS and add new city tours throughout Europe.
