About Jewish Museum In Prague
Jewish Museum Prague, housing one of the largest collections of Judaica in the world, is extremely popular. With over 40,000 objects and 100,000 books, the museum, founded in 1906, holds a lot of information about Czech and Moravian Jewish history. The museum was used by Nazis during the Second World War for storing the possessions of Jewish community. After the since there was no one claim the possessions left and since they were deemed to be valuable works of art by the Nazis, these objects were preserved in the museum as a remnant of the holocaust.
The Jewish Museum stands as testament and reminder of the atrocities committed on the Jewish community during the Second World War. It houses some of the last possessions of the 80,000 Jewish people of Czechoslovakia. It was on the suggestion of a Jewish employee that the building was used to store the confiscated possessions of the Jewish population. The museum is split into different synagogues with the building itself previously being a Spanish synagogue. The possession of the buildings used by the museum and the old Jewish cemetery was returned to the Jewish community of Prague in 1994 after what was called the Velvet revolution. The buildings received significant damage during the 2002 floods but not a singular collection was damaged
