Jewish Museum

  Mula Mustafe Bašeskije bb      (+387) 33 21 55 32     more than a year ago
The bare stone walls and timber floors of this museum, located in a Sarajevo synagogue built in 1581, provide an aesthetically pleasing space for a small but well designed and laid out museum dedicated to the city’s long Jewish history.

Along with religious artifacts the museum displays personal and professional objects associated with notable local writers, artists, composers and humanitarian workers. On the upper floor the displays turn their attention to one of the darkest periods in human history. The 12000 Jewish Bosnian victims of the Holocaust are commemorated in a large book bearing their names while photographs, documents and items such as concentration camp clothing provide the ‘faces’ behind these names and a testament to their suffering and the Jewish community’s ultimate survival.
