We heard about it on our hop-on hop-off tour, but couldn't find it again after, on our own. Too bad about it and the Synagogue (not open most of the week).

While the museum is sort of located near the red light district of Sydney, it is a wonderful restaurant recording the history of Sydney's and Australia's Jews while having an extensive section of the Holocaust.

Visited this haunting place a few years ago but I can still remember the tug on the heart strings and the tears in my eyes. If anyone has Jewish background or ancestry it is a most powerful experience.
