The Jewish Museum of Greece and its collection

The Jewish Museum of Greece
Source

The Jewish Museum of Greece in Athens documents as one of three museums (next to the Jewish Museum Thessaloniki and the small Jewish Museum Rhodes) the history of Judaism in Greece. Although Jews have been living in Greece since antiquity, the exhibits are mainly from the modern era. Parts of the synagogue were rebuilt in the museum. Other sacral objects come from the synagogues of Rhodes, Ioannina and the area around Thessaly. Featured in the museum is the support of the Greek liberation struggle, the Holocaust and Jewish life in the present day, with everyday objects, works of art and writings. On 800 m² about 8000 objects are shown.
