Ideal for younger people, helping them realize how was life for the Greek Jewish citizens before the holocaust & understand our resent history. For the rest of us that we don't forget, never let it happen again!

This museum is a moving testimony to the Greek Jewish community that was decimated during WWII. Such a subject would probably deserve a bigger museum but this one is already worth checking.

Spread over a spiral of 6 floors the rather sad story of the community and the enormous heroism during WW2. It is totally engrossing from basement reconstruction of a lost synagogue up to the stories of children saved through the Holocaust at the top.

This is a museum of the history of The Jews of Greece. I can't believe that it wasn't until 2000 that all these stories of Jewish children during the holocaust were discovered. The exhibits are very well done.

A well displayed collection of ancient and not so long past Athens. The displays had large handheld explanatory cards. Compared to other Jewish museums in Europe (Rome, Thessaloniki) this was well organized and presented.

Visiting the Jewish museum of Greece was impressive. It's small but the collections inside is very intresting and give a good overview about the Greek Jewish comminities. It worth a visit.

Syntagma
Perhaps the best place to get your bearings is
Syntagma Square, crowned by the imposing Parliament
building on its upper side and surrounded by other
large structures, such as the exclusive Hotel Grande
Bretagne. The grand avenues that lead towards Omonia
are also full of massive Neoclassical edifices like
the Numismatic Museum and those around smaller Platia
Kolokotroni. Here you will find lots of travel agents,
