Memorial Park for the Great Synagogue

November 2019 we will be remembering the 80th anniversary of the destruction of the Great Synagogue in Oświęcim.

For centuries this synagogue was the center of the Jewish life in our town.

Following the occupation of Oświęcim, the Great Synagogue was set ablaze and destroyed by the Germans on the night of November 29, 1939. 

Today only an empty square remains in its location.

In 2019 we will transform this space into a Memorial Park to create opportunities for reflection and remembrance for residents of Oświęcim and visitors to the town. The Park will become a place for education about the multicultural past of Oświęcim.

You can follow the development of this project on our website and our social media accounts.
