The building in which this museum is housed is the oldest synagogue in the country. The synagogue itself only came about because the Ottoman Empire embraced the Jews driven out of Spain in 1492. Ironic then that the land, which had given them so warm a welcome, became a Jewish nightmare under the Nazi influence and the 14000 strong community had to flee or be killed. That’s the story that’s told here – of a genocide before the Bosnian War.
