As Americans, we have heard of the systematic way in which the Nazi persecution of the Jews resulted in the decimation of the Jewish populations throughout Europe. Visiting the Great Synagogue in Budapest and listening to the guides tell the story of what has taken place, we could feel that for Hungarian Jews, the Holocaust was not so long ago.
Awe-inspiring would be a good word to describe the experience of visiting this monumental beautiful edifice and hearing the story of its creation and subsequent history. And of course visiting the Garden of Remembrance and the various other Holocaust memorials is devastating. But they are beautiful as well!
