Nozyk Synagogue,
interior view
Nozyk Synagogue is the only synagogue that survived the ravages of World War II.
The synagogue was originally founded by Zalman and Rywka Nozyk in 1900.
Though it survived the bombs that fell over Warszawa, the Nozyk Synagogue was damaged by the Nazis, who used the synagogue as a stable.
