Expert review of Joods Historisch Museum
The most absorbing part of this museum is the New Synagogue, where a large-scale, multi-media exhibition focuses on life for Amsterdam and Dutch Jews in the 20th century. Films, first-hand reports and mementoes present a very moving account of what Jews endured at the hands of the Nazis during the Second World War. In the Great Synagogue, you'll find various displays on Jewish practices - everything from marriage to circumcision. I also was thoroughly stimulated by the Children's Museum, a home of a typical Jewish family recreated in admirable detail.
