Description

Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki
Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki

The Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki is housed in one of the few buildings which survived the devastating fire of 1917 in the area where the Jewish community once prospered, reaching its peak during the 16th century. Its creation is an initiative of the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki, with the aid of the Cultural Capital of Europe Organization “Thessaloniki 1997”, which restored the building.

Here you can learn everything there is to know about the history of the Jewish community in the Maiden of the Thermaikos from the 3rd century AD until World War II through the exhibits in the permanent collections, photographs and Simon Marks' photographic exhibition, "Thessaloniki, Sephardic Metropolis".

On the museum's ground floor there are monumental stones and inscriptions found in the Jewish necropolis as well as a series of photographs, while in the center of the first floor there is a display of the Jewish community history, surrounded by halls which visually detail the religious and everyday life of the Jews in Thessaloniki.
