Jewish history in Czechoslovakia

 

 

Jewish history in Prague dates back over a thousand years, and a visit here includes the Old-New Synagogue, Europe's oldest functioning synagogue, the Spanish Synagogue with its displays relating to Jewish cultural life here in the early twentieth century, together with the old cemetery and other locations in Josefov.

 

A day visit is made to the memorial site at Terezin (Theresienstadt)
