The Jewish Museum

The Jewish Museum in Prague is somewhere steeped in history – and immense sadness.
The graves in The Old Jewish Cemetery date back to the 1400’s and it was fascinating to visit, seeing so many burials crammed together so tightly, row upon row.

The Holocaust Memorial there, housed in the Pinkas Synagogue is a stark and brutal reminder of the persecution that the Czech Jews suffered, and the known names of the victims of the Nazi death camps are recorded here. Painstakingly handwritten on the walls.
