Thank you very much for your nice comments. The purpose of our museum is to make known, even to our non-Jewish visitors, our history and with your comments we feel that we succeeded that.

Beautifully maintained place. Contributes to comprehend the tragedy of European Jewish history in the 20th century, almost nothing left of the great Jewish community after the 2nd World war.More

This museum is next to the synagogue and is really worth a visit. It is not really big but tells you the full history of the Jewish community on the island of Rhodes. Very interesting.

The story of the persecution of the small sephardic jewish community, removed, tortured, and many killed by the nazis, during the occupation in the 1940s is well told. Everyone should know this part of history.More

In the heart of the medieval town of Rhodes there is the only synagogue of the town that survived the german occupation, sephardi style of the 16th century and a small, informative and extremely well organised museum at the back. Don't miss out!
