Old Jewish Cemetary – Prague

11 Dec

The crumbling headstones of the Old Jewish Cemetery date from 1439 to 1787, and stand as a testament to the ghettoization of Jews, even in death. With a local guide, we toured the cemetery and parts of the Jewish museum, a collection spread among a number of synagogues, art and exhibits depicting the lives and turbulent history of Jews in Bohemia and Moravia. Pictures: the cemetery; Our travelers wearing yarmulka according to custom; Synagogues; a sculpture of Kafka; the old synagogue and Jewish Town Hall.
