"Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki" Top 5 Page for this destination Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki Tip by mikey_e

The Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki is small but interesting, if only because Jews played such an important role in the development of pre-WWII Thessaloniki, making up 50% of the population at one point. The Museum has pictures of the community on the ground floor and a chronological explanation of evolution of the community with greater emphasis on the community just before the Second World War (i.e. during the incorporation of Macedonia and Thrace into Greece) and the eventual destruction of the community during the Holocaust.
