Photo Exhibition at Vila Löw-Beer

Yesterday, Claudia and I went to Vila Löw-Beer to see a temporary photo exhibition of old Brno.

The exhibit was held in the customs house in the back garden.  Not very big but quite well done.

There were pictures of different parts of the city taken from way back when alongside how things look today.  It was very interesting to see how things have changed over time.

The Big Synagogue was completed in 1855.  The Nazis destroyed in it 1939 when Brno was occupied as part of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia.  Today part of the land is used for commercial buildings.

The exhibit only runs until the end of the month so I'm really glad that we caught it.
