This Jewish museum actually consists of six Jewish monuments clustered together in Josefov: the Maisel Synagogue; the Pinkas Synagogue; the Spanish Synagogue; the Klaus Synagogue; the Ceremonial Hall; and the Old Jewish Cemetery. Only a few minutes’ walk from the Charles Bridge brings you to Josefov, where the Jewish Ghetto was established many hundreds of years ago, and where the sense of suppression and isolation and discrimination hangs heavily in the air, none more so than at the Jewish cemetery where hundreds of gravestones topple over each other in a tiny plot of land.

Prague’s Jewish community was decimated in WWII, with about 80,000 Jews transported largely to extermination camps, and that was very easily visible from wall after wall of covered names. It pays a great tribute to the Jewish victims of the Holocaust from the Czech Republic and the victims of Terezin.
