Great Synagogue Memorial Park inauguration @ Oswiecim, Poland

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.

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.

Information about the cemetery from the sztetl.org website:

“The cemetery of the Jewish commune in Otwock was established at the beginning of the 20th century, south of Otwock, within the present administrative boundaries of Karczew, between Andriollego Street and Czerwona Droga Street. The easiest way to get to the cemetery from the side of Karczew is through Czerwona Droga Street. the forest on the right side you can see a wooden chapel, the cemetery is on the left side, about 200 m further. You can also reach the cemetery from Otwock, turning right from Andriolego Street into Hrabiego Street or directly into Czerwona Droga Street.

In the interwar period, mainly people who died in hospitals and sanatoriums in Otwock were buried in the cemetery.
