This is no doubt a fascinating collection and archive of the history of the Jewish Ghetto of Frankfurt; however, the layout introducing the visitor is unclear and weak, numbers on display boards don't appear to relate to anything and the english translations where they appear, are poor grammatically or rendered illegible in pale print on frosted glass. The 'welcome' is from two security guards and a metal-detector, who couldn't crack a smile; especially the woman who I could tell was english but who looked either bored or contemptuous at my attempts at smiling and engaging her in conversation.
There is no english guide book or recorded material and this was especially lacking in the more recent historical collection of first-person stories of religious persecution and conversion as well as the all-important Nazi 'contribution' to the Jewish story. No voices were translated and so a great deal went unappreciated. All a bit ironic when you consider what misunderstanding led repeatedly to terrible acts against the Jewish people over the centuries.
