Pinkas Synagogue

1st January 1970

Built in late Gothic style during 1535, the Pinkas Synagogue is Prague’s second oldest preserved synagogue. The synagogue was transformed into a memorial for the 80,000 Bohemian and Moravian Jews who were killed during the Holocaust. Following the Soviet invasion of 1968, the memorial was closed for 20 years. It was reopened to the public in 1995. An exhibition featuring children’s drawings from the Terezín Ghetto is permanently on display. The exhibition was produced under artist Friedl Dicker-Brandeis’ supervision.
