The Scroll in the Library at the Sion Centre for Dialogue and Encounter is one of the “Czech Memorial Scrolls” which were rescued from the deserted synagogues across Bohemia and Moravia and brought to Prague in 1942. The Jewish communities themselves largely perished, but 1564 Scrolls were brought to London almost 50 years ago. We are privileged to be entrusted with one of these precious “survivors” of the Shoah.
