What a blessing to find this small synagogue and memorial in Szentendre. A poignant memorial to lives lost in the Holocaust. We tried unsuccessfully to find the cemetery. Wish there had been directions available.

Loved finding this in Szentendre as it made the day trip to that city so much more worthwhile for us. I only wish the caretaker had had the courtesy to get off her phone as it was very disturbing to hear her talking when the sanctuary itself is so small. Maybe the owners can request she be off the phone... More

A tiny room of worship, this memorial was created and funded by the descendant of the Szántó family. The city of Szentendre had a small Jewish community before ww2, -it even had an elementary shool-. Hardly any of them survived the Holocaust. It is good to see that there is a sign of revival and activity in the Jewish community... More

Szanto Zsinagoga - the world's smallest synagogue. We were on a walk through Szentendre as part of a river cruise and came across this amazing place by accident. It is an beautiful memorial to a family who suffered so much yet wanted to have their story told. The story is told and really made us very sad as we were... More

We took a day trip to Szentendre and visited this synagogue. The lady who oversees it was very eager to give us an explanation. Only problem was she only spoken Hungarian. It is nicr a museum of the Jewish past the area had.

This Memorial Home is dedicated to the remembrance of the family who created it and some of whom were transported to the death camps in 1944. There are interesting photographs of the family in addition to artifacts. You can sit and read from the prayer books, view the Arc containing two Torahs, one of which is Kosher. A must visit.
