JAK ODZYSKAĆ DZIEDZICTWO UTRACONE. DREWNIANA SYNAGOGA Z ZABŁUDOWA
TO RECLAIM LOST HERITAGE – THE WOODEN SYNAGOGUE IN ZABŁUDÓW
Languages of publication
Up to the second world war the Polish landscape was enhanced by numerous wooden sacral buildings of assorted denominations: Christianity, Islam and Judaism, producing a colourful cultural mosaic testifying to Poland’s multicultural heritage and history. The Nazi occupation put an end to the existence of wooden synagogues which were all destroyed in fires. Today, there is not a single such object preserved. The article presents a concise outline of the history and appearance of the seventeenthcentury synagogue in Zabłudów (the region of Białystok) upon the basis of extensive literature on the subject. The author intends to popularise the valuable initiative of reconstructing the synagogue in the Białystok Skansen museum.
