This little three floor museum is in a Sephardic synatgogue. It is fascinating. The Jews expelled from Spain came in the 15th century to find refuge here and prior to WWII there were 9,000 Jews of which 7,000 were killed by the invading Nazi Croatians and Germans. They have some of the ancient artifacts and many of the photos of the various group activities of the kids and adults of this active community and some of the cultural artifacts such as the Golden Book. They continued to speak Spanish. One of the museum staff was present to answer questions - speaking fluent English. He said there are now 700 in the Jewish community of Sarajevo of which about half are Jewish and others are from other religions in mixed marriages (interfaith marriages have been common in Bosnia). Not expecting much, I found this to be the most interesting among several very interesting museums in Sarajevo.
