The last 20 Jews of Burma

I admit it. I never knew there was a Jewish community in Burma. But there was. In its heyday, in the 1940's, it had 2,500 members. Today, it's down 20. Most of the rest are here in Israel. The article was originally in German (Hat Tip: Mitchell W). There's an imperfect Google translation from which you can learn more about this community and see more pictures here.

My boyfriend's aunt just got back from Burma, and literally went to that synagogue. She had a fabulous time!
