  • As an Israeli and a Jew, I feel obligated to visit Jewish sites when I'm in Europe. Almost all museums are presenting in General Judaism, Jewry and its contribution to State and harmfulness. So here too. The Museum is trying to emphasize the aid of the Greeks during the German occupation. This is the fact that 87% of the Jews in Greece, was murdered in the Holocaust. Anyway, I felt obligated to visit the site. As always in Europe, behind door protected and a security guard. It's always me and command shows a lot about the State of European Jewry today.

  • 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.
