Beautifully restored synagogue in the less touristy part of the old town. The museum gives you a good insight into Jewish life in Rhodes.

This synagogue and museum is a memorial to the 90% of Rhodes’ 1943 Jewish population murdered by the Nazis in Auschwitz. It provides a snapshot of history and the destruction of a community. Nothing more needs to be said.

This museum attached to the synagogue tells the story of the vibrant and individual Jewish community which once flourished in Rhodes. It tells of the horrors of the holocaust but it concentrates on remembering a community. We should never forget.More
