Opened in March 2011, this better-than-average Skopje museum commemorates the 7,148 Jews from Macedonia who were murdered during the Holocaust through a series of exhibits that draws heavily on a number of sources, not least the incredible collection of photographs taken of the Jews of Bitola by the occupying Bulgarians in 1943 prior to their deportation to Poland and subsequent extermination the following year. Also featuring a wide range of other artefacts including, allegedly, one of the train wagons that sent some of the country’s Jews to their deaths, don’t pay too much attention to the opening hours listed here as the museum doesn’t do a great job at sticking to them. If you visit and the doors are bolted, bang hard and somebody might let you in.
