Several people recommended that we visit the synagogue as part of our visit to Curacao. We were blessed with a treat that was totally unexpected. After exploring the synagogue and the museum we asked a question of the volunteer at the museum desk. I did not get this wonderful lady's name. She was originally from Belgium and was a holocaust survivor. We had a discussion with her that will stay with us for the remainder of our lives. Her mother was gassed at Auschwitz and she and some siblings were saved by nuns. If you ever visit Curacao by all means visit the synagogue and take the time to ask the volunteer at the museum desk if she might be this lady. I assure you it will be worth every minute you spend talking with her.
