The synagogue holds a well organised and understandable display (in different languages) showing the rounding up of the Czech Jews during WW2 and their resulting removal from their homes n country.
The synagogue was transformed into a memorial in 1958 listing all 77,297 victims on the interior stone walls. The communists closed it n removed the names in 1967. After the fall of communism all of them were rewritten. A fantastic memorial to all those lost in the Holocaust and their descendants.
This is one of those places that reminds those living in freedom the price that was paid.

This is a vital piece of history.A reminder of how evil flourished .A stern warning to the complacent: this happened in a modern industrial country..it must never be forgotten.

A must visit place to hear the story of Jewish Czechs over the last six hundred years.
A small country and its heritage destroyed by Nazi ideology .

If in Prague it is a must to visit thoose buildings. At least the 3 synagogues (Maisel, Ponias & Klausen,Spanish under reconstruction until 2021) the ceremonial hall and the Old Jewish cemetery. Great state of conservation, enough information available in English and nice but firm staff.
Don't purchase the audio guide in Spanish: it's useful because it resumes the information quite well, but in some places it's difficult to locate the info points and the voice is super monotonous and slow, not as interesting as what you were seeing.
I highly recommend the Pinkas synagogue, which will lead you to the cemetery.
The Galerie R Guttmanna was a cold surprise, we were not expecting contemporary art, but some people might appreciate this small exhibition.

Our ticket didn't include the Old-New synagogue but for what I know it sure will be also worth it.

The children's art is so unthinkably sad. This building is very impressive and tells an important story, never to be forgotten.
