  • This square and the surrounding streets of the Jewish quarter are worth a visit. In the middle of the square the monument that remembers the victims of the Holocaust: represents a library with the door closed and shelves with closed books seen on the side of the pages. On the base the names of Nazi camps. Under the monument ruins are visible from the nearby Museum. In the area there is also the synagogue not destroyed by the Nazis because at the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire had been built inside a normal building and therefore was not located and destroyed.

  • It is a place of memory. So we must not forget what has been lived those years. Memory of innocent dead people. The memory of persecution unjustifiably to Jews. A place to visit. It saddens me to see how Jews were being persecuted in Europe. Is located in the Museum the original remains of the synagogue of the highly recommended people from Vienna

  • Very small, yet remember this is only half the museum complex. The other half is over by the church. Get the Vienna Pass to go into this one. The excavation is amazing.
  • The medieval synagogue excavation is a treat. The Simon Weisenthal exhibition was worth the entrance fee alone.
  • Atmosphere is authentic, great way to send the message of the Holocaust, never forget
  • Not worth the money and time. The medieval ruins are cool, but that's about it. Ten minutes to see the whole thing.
  • The environment of the square is very beautiful and the message of the Jewish Holocaust memorial is something to never forget.
