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.
