What a blessing to find this small synagogue and memorial in Szentendre. A poignant memorial to lives lost in the Holocaust. We tried unsuccessfully to find the cemetery. Wish there had been directions available.

We took a day trip to Szentendre and visited this synagogue. The lady who oversees it was very eager to give us an explanation. Only problem was she only spoken Hungarian. It is nicr a museum of the Jewish past the area had.
