Overview
More
The main aim of the Museum is to preserve and reflect the history of the Jewish communities of Catalonia, which throughout the entire medieval period formed part of, and made a decisive contribution to, the history of the country and its cultural and scientific development. In most cases an attempt has been made to illustrate the explanations given during the visit to the Museum with examples of items originating from Girona's own Jewish history. These examples, which may be in documentary, archaeological or pictorial form, thus offer a general explanation of the pattern of Jewish life in medieval Catalonia.

The video we watched (about 10 minutes) and all the descriptions were done well in English. Consequently, we learned once again about a European community that exploited and terrorized its Jewish citizens into extinction after a prosperous period. No wonder that even then in the...More
