Synagogues in Poland
At one time there were over six thousand synagogues scattered
throughout Poland. They represented an essential part of Jewish
heritage and culture in prewar Poland. Today only a small remnant remains. Of these but a handful have been restored. There are only two synagogues in all of Poland where religious services are regularly conducted, one in Warsaw and the other in Krakow. The words "never again" represent only part of the tragedy. We cannot allow the rich heritage of Jewish life in Poland to be erased or forgotten. These pictures of a "culture that once was" - is an attempt to preserve that heritage.
