Jewish Museum, {CATEGORY}

One of the largest museums exploring the Jewish presence in Europe can be found inside an old mansion of Plaka. The Jewish Museum documents a period starting over 2,300 years ago, when the first Jews settled in Greece by following the routes of the Phoenician trade ships. The next major arrival happened in the 15th century by thousands of Sephardim Jews who were forced to leave Spain. The museum's exhibits vividly recreate these and other historic periods from antiquity until the tragic destruction of the Greek Jewish community during the Second World War, with only 8,500 of the 80,000 pre-war population surviving the Holocaust. The 7,000 exhibits include, among others, a collection of traditional costumes, religious items and historic manuscripts.

Jewish Museum, {CATEGORY}

Greece's Jewish community, a strong presence throughout the country and a dominant force in Thessaloniki, was essentially obliterated in the Holocaust. Heart-rending exhibits here include the wedding photograph of Yosef Levy and Dona Habif, who married in April 1944 and a month later were sent to Auschwitz, where they were killed. Articles of daily life and religious ceremony include children's toys and special Passover china. Perhaps the most impressive exhibit is the handsome reconstruction of the Patras synagogue. Most exhibits have English labels. If you contact museum curator Zanet Battinou in advance of your visit, she will try to have a staff member take you through the collection. The small shop carries books and museum reproductions, including lovely note cards reproducing manuscripts and prints.
