Auschwitz Jewish Centre
Auschwitz Jewish Centre information
Lonely Planet review
In the centre of the town of Oświęcim, this institution approaches the Holocaust from another angle, with permanent exhibitions about Oświęcim’s thriving Jewish community in the years before WWII. Within the restored synagogue (1913) are photos and Judaica found beneath the town’s Great Synagogue in 2004. It’s hard to forget you’re looking at the last remnants of Polish Jewry, an all but exterminated culture.
