The security man sked if I had any thing sharp I said 'only my wits' and he told me he had heard the reply about a million times so disproving my assertion, just a heads up if you are feeling clever.
The museum is in three parts the first is General Jewish religious memorabilia and is mildly interesting.
The Second is the history of the Jewish community in South Africa and is fascinating and on the whole very well put together so that some like me who knew little of the subject could learn stuff and I imagine even people steeped in the subject would still find the visit worth while I did feel that a very subtle attempt was made to distance the Jewish community from any possible Apartheid type sins the list of prominent Jewish politicians were all Anti-Apartheid the quote from Mandala about his work for a Jewish law firm highlighted his positive remarks and somewhat skipped over his previous not so praising earlier remark in the same book.
The Third part is a Holocaust display which naturally is only very indirectly concerned with South Africa but although it is a well know story it is told in in very dispassionate manner that even explains the circumstances and motivations for what happened this tone I found a very effecting and maybe for the First time bought the view that is often put that this event could quiet easily happen again in a modern industrialised country if people aren't vigilant .
