Lonely Planet review

Not far north of the zoological museum stands one of the few remnants of Kaunas’ former Jewish community. Inside this functioning synagogue is a remarkable dark-wood and gold bimah, and outside resides a memorial to 1600 children killed at the Ninth Fort. The WWII Jewish ghetto was on the western bank of the Neris, in the area bounded by Jurbarko, Panerių and Demokratų streets.
