Renovation of the Zamosc Ancient Synagogue

Following the renovation of the Old Synagogue at Zamosc by FODZ (Foundation for the Preservation of Jewish Heritage in Poland) we shall exhibit there some of our pictures in a permanent show.

We thank our members Yoram and Dita Golan for their deep commitment.

We thank Monika Krawczyk, FODZ Dyrektor, for her perpetual work.


On July 2004 a plaque was inaugurated in the Zamosc Synagogue, written upon:

In commemoration of the 15000 Jews of Zamosc murdered by the Nazi Germans
and their collaborators during World War 2.

The Jewish community of Zamosc was founded in 1588 following Hetman Jan Zamoysky’s creed, which envisioned a city of tolerance, solidarity and cultural coexistence.
Till its annihilation, the community flourished and significantly contributed to the city’s commerce industry and culture.
