  • The story of the Holocaust is always hard to see. But prior to that, this museum educates about the Saphardic diaspora. Well presented and well worth the time  more »
  • The exhibition commemorating the Holocaust victims is among the best I have seen in the subject. In addition to local aspects, it also gives a good overview of the overall Jewish history. Don't miss this superb museum. And make sure that in bytes have a hurry.
