  • This is a small museum but very nicely done. It has a large Judaica collection as well as a comprehensive history of the Jews before the Holocaust. There is a security officer at the entrance and all ...  more »
  • We have seen the story of the Jewish community of Athens. The evils and passions of the sad era of the Holocaust. We saw photos, handmade jewelry, old embroideries and weapons that we traveled back to the past. The explanatory records exhibits very well balmenes, legible and detailed. Video testimonies from Holocaust survivors about how they were saved by brave Greek citizens during the German occupation, is really touching. The Museum is relatively small and consists of three floors. The elevator is accessible to people with a wheelchair. Entrance fee 6 euros.

  • We took our time to read all the discptions and stories on the cards. It was very emotional and touching. Worth a visit if you have the time.
  • Small but sweet, I happened upon this museum after scaling the roads to the Acropolis, upon which I saw lots of anti-semitic graffiti. Greeks and Jews have much in common, and equally many differences. It is a worthwhile visit to look at some of the points in history where the two were one.
  • A very aducated tour of what happend to the Jews in Greece until world war 2. The enterance from the street is not very clear. Small iron door stand close you have to push a botton for the gurd to let you in.
  • Very informative a out the history of a 2500 year old continuous community obliterated by the Nazis.
  • Interesting museum, authentic exposition. Good place to spend couple of hours.
