Great Synagogue Memorial Park inauguration @ Oswiecim, Poland
Nov 28 @ 17:30 – 21:00
In Oswiecim, Poland, signage at the site of the destroyed synagogue includes a photo

Marking the 80th anniversary of the destruction of the Great Synagogue in Oswiecim, a memorial park will be dedicated on its site.

The site was long an empty lot, with in recent years signage describing the site.

The park is a project of the Auschwitz Jewish Center and has been supported by the town of Oświęcim as well as institutional and private donors from Poland and elsewhere.

Archaeological excavations in 2004 discovered candlesticks from the synagogue as well as the Eternal Light – Ner Tamid.

Candelabra from the destroyed Great Synagogue in the Jewish Museum in Oswiecim

The memorial will include a replica of the candelabra (the original is displayed in the AJC’s museum) as well as a structure containing historic photographs of the synagogue.
