I was told this was the ghetto area. The statue is haunting in itself- the area now busy with tavernas. Such a terrible experience too harsh to contemplate. A fitting memorial as no one should forget

this is a few steps from the currently used synagogue at the bottom of the hill where the new fortress stands, at the edge of town. Very nicely done.

Despite having a great map and a big bottle of water, we never found the statues. Asked locals, some pointed us north, while the next fellow pointed us west... We canvassed the entire area. Finally gave up and were very disappointed. What we can say...More

You could easily walk past this statue without knowing what it represents - perhaps it could have a little more oomph so we don't forget. There's also a synagogue nearby which is worth a visit.

We didn’t know about this memorial sculpture until it was mentioned to us by a local shop owner in the old city. He directed us how to get there and we found it. It was created in 2001 and is very interesting and a nice...More

in an odd spot but it stands out. A moving tribute to those lives lost in WW2. The plaque that goes along with it reminds us all of the horrors that happened. A place to meditate and evaluate.

The statue itself is quite moving. It was dedicated in 2001 to the island's population of 2000 Jews who were rounded up in the dying days of the war in 1944 and sent to the concentration camps. Only 121 survived. The statue, whilst modern in...More

The monument is surrounded by bars, restaurants and terraces which we found weird and rather difficult accept. But then, when we thought about it, men, women and children were rounded up when they were in the middle of their normal life, most likely also surrounded...More

By bus is few minutes. It's in "Evraiki", near the new Fortress. If you will arrive by the bus to the station near the old Fortress, it about 20 minutes walk through the old town.
