Overview

The Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki was founded to honor the rich and creative Sephardic heritage as it evolved in the city of Thessaloniki.On the ground level are monumental stones and inscriptions that were once found in the great Jewish necropolis that lay to the east of the city walls. Accompanying these stones are a series of photographs showing the cemetery and visitors as it was in 1914.Central to the first floor is a narrative history of the Jewish presence in Thessaloniki from the 3rd century BCE until the Second World War. A separate exhibit focuses on the Shoah, as it affected the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki. The majority of the community - some 49,000 persons - was systematically deported to Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen where most of them perished.A research and documentation center operates within the premises, which aims to document and digitize archival documents from the Museum's own collection as well as archival material from other sources, thus creating a database accessible to visitors.The Museum provides special educational programs for schools.

It was really interesting to find out about the history of the Jewish Community in Thessaloniki, but really shocking to read about the persecution suffered by them throughout the years and the virtual elimination of the community by the Nazis. It was handled very sensitively...More

An excellent museum which tells the history of the Jewish community in Thessaloniki, which at one time comprised over half the population of the City.
