First, because a High Nazi was living in Prague and secondly, the Nazi wanted to

make of Prague, "a museum of a defunct race", thus they preserved the city

"In one of the most grotesquely ironic acts of WWII, the Nazis took over the management of the Prague Jewish Museum - first established in 1906 to preserve artefacts from synagogues that were demolished during the slum clearances in Josefov around the turn of the 20th century - with the intention of creating a 'museum of an extinct race'. They shipped in materials and objects from destroyed Jewish communities throughout Bohemia and Moravia, helping to amass what is probably the world's biggest collection of sacred Jewish artefacts and a moving memorial to seven centuries of oppression."
