Continue to the "Goes" area to view the colorful housing projects built in the early 1920's by real-estate developer Emilio Reus, then see the old Synagogue. The last portion of the tour will give you a glimpse of present day life, with views of the "Pocitos" residential area and Jewish Schools. Conclude at the Holocaust Memorial, the only one of its kind in South America.
