The Museum is dedicated to the remarkable but little-known phenomenon of Bukovinian Jewry from the end of eighteenth century to the 1940's. Here, in multinational Bukovina, there was no Pale of Settlement. Here the Jews managed to gain equality with other peoples. Here prevailed an atmosphere of tolerance, mutual respect and cooperation among people of different nationalities and religious beliefs that was exceptional for those years. Here Jewish culture flourished, influencing other cultures and being influenced by them. Here there was an intense and bright religious life and a no less colorful and interesting cultural life and then everything disappeared in the flames of the Holocaust.
