“Interesting place to visit”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

The synagogue is a beautiful building, and full of artefacts from its entire history to keep you interested for a while. The Holocaust memorial garden is elegant and thought-provoking. the museum staff were very interesting and helpful - the people on the doors were less so!

“Very Expensive”
Reviewed October 24, 2012

No choice - you had to have a guide. Very expensive - £17 - when it should be somewhere where all need to be reminded the epitomy of human behaviour. The area where the Synagogue is situated was the area of the Jewish getto. These people suffered and this place is a reminder of it. In Auschwitz, there is no charge because it is a museum to remind us - an education - this should be the case in this place of worship. A donation should be requested.

You can see much of the area from the railings.

“Moving experience”
Reviewed October 23, 2012

It is always difficult to visit Jewish heritage sites and learn more about the holocaust. But this synagogue is definitely worth a visit. It is the second largest synagogue in the word and very interesting. There are features about this synagogue that are truly unique. Everybody should see it.
