Take a guided tour of Budapest's Great Synagogue to hear about the history and architecture of the largest synagogue in Europe and the second-largest in the world, as well as the fate of the Hungarian Jews before and after WWII.

It was very interesting and informative. The guide did his best with his accent to convey the information in English. The building was beautiful and the history was sad. I only hope we learn from these past mistakes, but current world affairs are showing we have not.
