Pinkas Synagogue (Pinkasova Synagoga)
As one of the Jewish quarter's restored Renaissance monuments, this synagogue dates back to the early sixteenth century. The Jewish Museum has turned it into a heartbreaking memorial to the 78,000 Czech Jews who died in the Holocaust. Their names are calligraphed on the inner walls. Upstairs is a selection of drawings by children who were imprisoned in the ghetto at Terezin, or Theresienstadt, north of Prague.
This synagogue is a wonderful memorial to the Jewish victims of the holocaust. When viewing the walls covered with handwritten names, one has to admire the work it took to have everyone's name so neatly written. After seeing the synagogues, you go through the Jewish cemetery which is also a sight to behold. It was really croweded the day we went and our tour guide was rushing us. It would have been better to go when there were not a lot of people so we could have more time to look at the names.
