The Jewish Museum of Thessaloniki, is located in the center of Thessaloniki and it is housed in a historic building that was built in 1904 with designs of the Italian architect Vitaliano Pozeli. The building was restored between 1998 to 2003 from a fund by the “Organisation for the Cultural Capital of Europe Thessaloniki 1997”. The museum was established after an initiative of the president of the Jewish Community of Thessaloniki. It was founded in May 2001 in order to honour the memory of the Sephardic heritage of Thessaloniki. According to Thessaloniki’s history the Jewish community moved to the city in the early Ottoman period and flourished and contributed significantly to the re-generation of the city. During the flourished period the Jewish community was representing almost half of Thessaloniki’s population (49000 Jewish). The Jewish community started to loose its power after the great fire in 1917 which destroyed most of the Jewish Quarter in the heart of the city. By the end of 1945, 96,5% of the Jewish Community of the city was exterminated by the nazis in the death camps of Poland.
The museum is housing memorials of Thessaloniki’s Jewish community during the history and other material related with the Jewish presence in Thessaloniki. A research and documentation center operates within the premises, which aims to document and digitize archival documents from the Museum’s own collection as well as archival material from other sources and a database and related library accessible to visitors.
