There is a 12th century synagogue foundation under the memorial. The memorial is designed to look like books. The museum is well worth a visit. more »
It's supposed to represent a library with books placed spine backwards, the significance of which was lost on me. If I didn't know I would have thought it was something to do with the underground railway. It's astonishing that the opportunity to mark such a tragedy has been wasted.
A nice little square tucked away from a lot of things. The memorial was nice to visit and to remember the horrors of WW2 suffered at the hands of the Jewish people.
