Jewish Museum - Review

Once upon a time in the late 19th century and early 20th century Odessa had the 3rd highest population of Jews of any city in the world. Their contributions to the arts, sciences and culture, especially to the early development of cinema in Europe was significant. This museum focuses on this rich cultural integration with a collection of documents, photographs, news, religious apparel, musical instruments and art. The museum also has exhibition of what a regular Jewish family in Odessa might have looked like in terms of the arrangement of their home. Artefacts related to professions such as shoemaking and hairdressing are also present. The museum is slightly unusual from other Jewish museums in that it only dedicates a small room to commemorate the Holocaust.

Jewish Museum, Odessa Reviews

  • Thought-provoking museum about the experience of Jews under the Nazis regime. However it is more of an art museum with installations that require your own interpretation of what they mean. However don't let that put you off! It definitely makes you feel grateful for what you have. When we went it wasn't overly crowded, and there's a lovely garden to sit in if the weather permits, where you can sit and reflect on what you've seen. Recommend the audio guide too - only an extra €3 and it gives you a lot of extra info. Also note that you can't take large backpacks into the museum, but they have a free cloakroom.

  • An absolute must see, along with the Jewish Memorial, both very thought provoking. The building in itself is so impressive but the museum is very well laid out and really makes you think. If you are able, try and spend just a few moments in 'The Holocaust Tower' on your own, it can be difficult when the museum is busy, but its a very haunting and moving experience without the noise of other people around, highly recommend!

  • An absolute must visit when you are in Berlin. The building is a masterpiece, and try to capture many of the experiences felt during the holocaust. It was a ground breaking piece of architects, despite leibskinds later work not really matching its success. The missus content is heartbreaking and displayed excellently. Don't miss it

  • As the main museum was closed when i visited, i can only see the art part of the museum and the part about jewish. Not really interesting, in my opinion. For art enthusiasts, this will be a good choice as the art gallery was pretty good. However, as i was looking for the main museum, i was a bit disappointed being unable to see it. The audio guide was helpful though.

  • At the entrance the staff asked me. He told me I was Japanese. I answered that I am Korean. Then he said he was sorry. He said he could not distinguish between Koreans and Japanese. This is not a big word. But I was very thankful to him. You will ask why this is what I appreciate. What does it mean to Koreans or Chinese to be treated as Japanese by coming to this exhibition? Koreans and Chinese were victims of World War II. They were slaughtered. And tortured. 14-year-old young girls became sex slaves. They are our grandmothers. The Japanese Empire was a perpetrator in WWII. But they did not apologize sincerely. In 2015, the incompetent government in Korea received sex slavery compensation. It was only 8.4 million euros. And because of their domination until WWII, we are still divided. I sincerely hope for unification. May 25 2018, Today is an incredibly sad day for Koreans. The news that came from Washington tore the hearts of Koreans. We still can not unify by our own strength. I did not want to get equal treatment with Japanese at least in Berlin. Like Raymond Carver's novel "A small, good thing" I got a lot of comfort from the staff today. I express my gratitude to the one that was not great but comforted me.
