This synagogue is certainly a place to see in Prague. A beautiful building and memorial to over 80,000 Czech Jews who perished during the Holocaust by having their names written on the walls the building. Definitely worth visiting..

A very moving experience and something we all need to be reminded of whatever our background or beliefs. It shows what evil can do and challenges us all to make sure it is never repeated.

cemetery in Europe. The narrow streets were once small
enough that a person could touch the houses on both
