    Unfortunately the house of terror is still alive and well in quite a few places around the world.

    I’m glad the two of you had a great time.

    Big hug to you and Diane. :)

    The House of Terror and Budapest sound interesting for me because I want to learn more on the history of World Wars.

    The Terror Museum is so stark and visually imposing. Intriguing but also intimidating – I’m sure the designers were going for such an effect.

    What did the rest of the street look like, did this building really stand out as much as it seems from the photo?

    RennyBA
    No, this building did not stand out – only the banner on the roof.

    “Visit and Enjoy” may be a strong expression for the exhibition, but it was a highly relevant post. A bit of history is never amiss.

    PS Thank you for the comment – the bridge is “of course Askøybroen” – look at my header ;-)

    Stunning pics! The buildings revoke painful memories, yet preserve the tough journey the Jews have strived to walk on till this day…

    The first building looks so dark and scary… So many pages or dark European history were written here, as you mentioned. The best we can do is to not forget…

    The Synagogue is just beautiful. I don’t think I have ever been to one come to think of it.

    Hi Renny,

    “Each and every one of us – in our own way – is responsible for not allowing it to happen again – to anybody!” – you bet, Renny! And I do my part so that we do not forget, and let not it happen again…ever again.

    The house of horror is really horrible: I could capture the tense environment from here (the terrible things that were done there, just make me sick).

    Awww, the synagogue is so beautiful!!

    This post, Renny, encourages me to proceed and denounce fascism, racism, prejudice, persecution and any type of disrespect and violation of the human rights!

    Fantastic!

    Cheers

    such a sad part of human history but important that we remember so that hopefully we may never repeat it.

    Many thanks for sharing these wonderful pictures with commentary on the history of the largest, and one of the most beautiful, synagogues of Europe. The Hungarian people and the Jewish people of Hungary have suffered much during the cold war era and World War II. In a world today of increasing antisemitism, we need to do all we can to prevent another Holocaust, and promote peace and goodwill among all peoples. Thanks again, and bless you Renny for doing your part!

    Thanks for the informative post. A question: does the House of Terror have English language informational panels?

    RennyBA
    No, but you can rent headsets with more than 20 language to guide you around.

    Those are very interesting places. Visiting the House of Terror must have been an unforgettable experience. The Budapest Central Synagogue has a distinct exterior. The interior is impressive.
