We appreciated the exhibit of the ruins of the ghetto as well as the history of when the ghetto started. The museum helped me understand the challenges that were in place many years before hitler.

Thank you very much for your visit and your positive review. It's true, we don't highlight Jewish history after the time around 1800 in this museum. The 19th, 20th and 21st century will be subject in our main location which will reopen in 2019.
