Central Synagogue coupled with this backyard monument collection from the hungarian experience of the Holocaust is a must see. One will find the monuments of the Righteous who helped save the lives of hundreds of innocent people... a moving and beautiful visit!

It hurts. Even if I am not Jewish nor any of my family members. When you walking through the rooms you don’t feel yourself proud being human... The museum is not so big. There are mostly pictures and videos inside only with a few objects....More

a fascinating yet upsetting visit. The memorial itself is mind blowing with the vast list of victims from the jewish community and the exhibition uncovers disturbing truths about what these people were subjected too.Why!!

Very informative place with loads to see. Some of the footage of the victims of the Holocaust was very difficult to watch. In fact I could only watch around two minutes of it and had to move away as I would have been sobbing uncontrollably...More

Although one knows the history of that era, however, seeing the actual footages of the events were very chilling.. how human beings treated other human beings because of different culture, beliefs and norm..

The synagogue itself is stunning with a strange mix of Moorish and romantic periods. It is simply beautiful. The free tour guide is brilliantly informative and answered questions very well. The unbelievably sad history of what happened to the Jewish community here is brought home...More
