Unlike other museums which present the grim narrative of the Holocaust, this remarkable museum, opened in September 2008, tells the inspiring story of the survival and second life of 1,564 Torah Scrolls from Bohemia and Moravia.
The large collection of Torah binders, probably the largest such collection in the UK, are a newly-accessible highlight.
This is “The Wall of Scrolls” containing approximately 150 scrolls
