The synagogue lies a relatively modest building, yet it is one of the most overwhelming and moving holocaust memorials I've seen. The first floor walls are covered with the names of Czech-Jewish people who died during the holocaust and seeing the amount of names is terrifying. The top floor is dedicated to an exhibition of children's drawings made in Terezin ghetto. Take the time to look at the drawings, read about the kids and about their amazing teacher Friedl Dicker-Brandeis (who died in Auschwitz) and her method for art therapy. I was very moved by the simple yet beautiful drawings and the way they reflected the young children's thoughts and experiences during that horrible time.
The cemetery is also very moving, although macabre it is beautiful, and makes you think about the many people resting there and about the thriving Jewish community that was once in Prague.
