Religious Site · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
At Pinkas Synagogue Pinkasova synagoga, see the moving exhibit of drawings and paintings Jewish orphans created in the ghetto, while they were awaiting transportation to the Auschwitz gas chambers. Aaron M. Horowitz built the synagogue in 1535 between his house and the 15th-century cemetery. The synagogue was turned into a memorial in 1958, but the communists closed it and removed the names of the Holocaust victims in 1967. After the fall of Communism, the 77,297 names were rewritten on every inch of the interior stone walls. The most prominent person buried in the cemetery is the great religious 17th-century scholar Rabbi Loew, who is associated with the legend of the Golem.

  • Really thought provoking, unfortuantely rained just as we were about to walk through the graveyard which resulted in crowds of people all trying to shelter from the rain. However the rain really added to the solemn atmosphere.
  • Powerful memorial of the holocaust. Buy a combined ticket from the information center nearby, don't waste time standing in line.. much faster and more reasonably prices
