  • The original aim was to preserve valuable artefacts from the Prague synagogues that were liqudated during the reconstruction of the Jewish Town at the beginning of the 20th century. The Museum was closed to the public after the Nazi occupation of Bohemia and Moravia on 15 March 1939. In 1942 the Nazis established the Central Jewish Museum, to which were brought artefacts from all the liquidated Jewish communities and synagogues of Bohemia and Moravia. Its founding was proposed by Dr. Stein who, in co-operation with other specialist memberss of staff, sought to save the Jewish memorial objects that were being conficated by the Nazis. Following long negotiations, the Nazis approved the project to set up a central museum, despite being guided by different motives than the Museum´s founders.
