Interesting and well presented collection of Jewish documents, photographs and religious materials. Helps to have a guide who can point out and explain the various items and their historical significance. Highly recommended.

Gives a very informative insight into the Jewish communities suffering during the war periods. The worker is incredibly helpful and could tell personal family experiences of actual events.
