About Poland. Page Twelve: About Old Synagogue
Remuh Synagogue
This is the first founded and the smallest synagogue in Kazimierz, a Jewish quarter in Krakow. It was built in1553.

After the WWII the synagogue was completely reconstructed in1957. It is still a cultural place of the Jewish people. It is visited by Jews from all around the world. The Remu'h Synagogue and Cemetery is still used by Krakow's surviving Jews.

Beside the synagogue there is a unique old cemetery founded in the year 1533 with Renaissance and Baroque tombstones from the16th, 17th and 18th centuries. It is the only Renaissance Jewish cemetery stayed intact in all of Europe.
With this photo I’m back to my Polish series. I’ll return to Portugal later.
