The Museum of the History of Odesa Jews, opened in 2002 by the city's active Jewish community, uses photographs, newspapers, books and religious garments to document the history and culture of Odesa’s Jews, once the world’s third-largest Jewish community (after New York and Warsaw). Exhibits cover the tragic pogrom of 1905, the Holocaust and the Jewish resistance during Soviet rule in the 1960s. Visits are by special appointment only. A 15-minute walk from the museum, in Prokhorovsky Square, the Holocaust Memorial is dedicated to the estimated 273,000 Jews from Odesa killed during the Nazi occupation of the city from 1941 to 1944.
