This is the largest Synagogue in Europe and rates on a world scale. A 19th Century construction with a unique and decorative brick pattern. We waited for the English language tour and enjoyed the heavily accented Hungarian English narrative. The Synagogue was full of capped men and women with covered shoulders. Cameras are allowed, and the building is full of symbolism much the same as we have experienced in the Christian Churches. You can have your name plate fixed to a pew for a squillion forints.
Outside the tour takes on a somber tone as you pass by the courtyard which was the scene of mass murder of the Jews in 1944. Pictures on the columns are a stark reminder of what happened and what should have been stopped.
The adjoining museum is a must and so too is the holocaust room. The Jews have many sayings, one in particular " Never forget".." Never again". It Is necessary for all people to be reminded of this. How easily it is for us to forget history.
