Jewish Museum in Prague


  This exhibition comprises five sections which explore the various phases and aspects of the Nazi policy towards the "Final Solution of the Jewish Question." The individual periods are indicated by different colours. We have attempted to describe the course of the Second World War and the persecution of the Jews through the eyes of the children who lived during that time, by featuring their diaries and reminiscences.
  The large photographs on each panel help to give an idea about the life and conditions in the individual periods. The smaller photographs serve to illustrate the text.
