   The Synagogues of Europe

 

The Synagogue at Krasnosielc, Poland
 






 

This synagogue, according to documents, was built in the late 1800's to serve the towns of Krasnosielc and possibly Rozan. The street on one side was renamed Jewish Street after its construction. To save money, the second story interior, reserved for the women of the congregation, was reached by an exterior stairway.

P
laques (seen in photo above on left wall) were placed on the wall of the synagogue by the Association of Former Krasnosielc Residents in Israel and USA in 1996. The plaque on the wall relates to this site of the murdered Jews on the night of Sept 5,1939.

The inscription reads: "This building was the synagogue of 2000 members of the Jewish community of Krasnosielc until World War II.

Here on the night of 6 IX 1939 more than 50 prominent members of the community were brutally murdered by the Nazi-Germans and their bodies buried in the adjoining yard.

The remainder of the community was then driven out through acts of terror to a bitter fate."
