Holocaust Memorial Tours and Activities

Holocaust Memorial
Finally inaugurated in 2009 after a long (and somewhat controversial) wait, Bucharest’s Holocaust Memorial serves as a stark reminder of the thousands of Romanian Jews affected by the Holocaust. The memorial holds great significance not only for Romania’s Jewish community, but as a symbol that the country recognizes its role in events (a fact often denied by the post-war communist government). 

The memorial itself is a simple yet poignant monument, designed by artist Peter Jacobi and featuring a plaque dedicated to the estimated 280,000 Jews and 25,000 Roma who lost their lives during the Holocaust. The memorial includes a ‘Column of Memory’, inlaid with the Hebrew word for ‘Remember’, and a Roma wheel, dedicated to the Romani people.

Practical Info

The Holocaust Memorial is located on Anghel Saigny St, a short walk north of the Dâmbovița riverfront in central Bucharest.
Address: 1 Anghel Saigny St, Bucharest, Romania

Bucharest Jewish tour

Bucharest Jewish tour

On this tour we will present the most significant places in Bucharest that have had to do with the life of the Jews in Romania. In the 19th century about 10% of Romania's pollution was Jewish. Most Jews lived in big cities like Bucharest. They positively influenced the life of the community and left behind monuments of inestimable value such as temples. Unfortunately, 20th-century politics caused the Jewish community to leave Romania with or without their will.
