There is not much of the concept of a Synagogue as it is basically a shell. The building is in very good condition but not much else. The part worth seeing is the photographic memorial of the families who lived here and were taken. The...More

No one was home so we could not get inside. The cafe was also closed. The Synagogue was a bit hard to find as it is across the river from the main city in a very quiet section of the city..
