Can you imagine sitting in your home - in the same city where your family has been for 300 years - and one day, you and all of your family are simply removed and annihilated? This isn't science fiction and it isn't ancient history. This is 70 years ago. Don't believe it could happen today? Look at the images in this museum. See the faces of the families. Look into their eyes. This is human and important. I'm so pleased this museum exists to tell this important story. It is exceptionally well put together. It is on Minna - my favorite street in Thessaloniki just two blocks from the waterfront and the fragrant orange blossoms on the street drew me back over and over again. It should be noted that there is a walking tour of Jewish Thessaloniki that has nothing to do with the museum but they really should be connected and/or cross promoted, as one could go to the museum and not realize that there is a City Walking Tour to bring the exhibition to life in 3D. The tour operates on Fridays around 11 AM, so I would ask about that as well. The museum fee is around 3 Euro. I gave them more.
