The Nazis destroyed the cemetery tearing down the walls and hauling away tombstones to be used as paving stones in the camps. All tombstones unearthed as paving stones have been returned and re-erected. It's a touching site to be viewed-tremendous history here. You can take...More

Visited as part of a walk through Kasimierz. It still functions as a synagogue. The wall of the graveyard is partly faced with broken grave stones. Much restoration has taken place, though many more must be hidden in the undergrowth. A peaceful place now, with...More

This was a very interesting; although extremely small synagogue. Walking around the cemetery was quite moving; our guide told us how the gravestones were knocked down and covered with dirt to protect them from desecration during the War.

This is quite an old (over 450 years old) and small synagogue, located next to the old Jewish cemetery. While it's not so impressive, you could spare a couple of minutes there, while you're in the Jewish quarter.

Remuh Synagogue is situated at ul. Szeroka 40 in the Kazimierz DIstrict (Jewish Quarter). There is a cemetery next to it.
