Nożyk Synagogue

Built between 1898 and 1902 in a neo-Romanesque style, this was the only Warsaw synagogue to survive the ravages of war; in fact, if we include prayer houses and other Jewish religious buildings - of which there were over 400 in Warsaw before World War II - it is one of only two such buildings to have survived. Converted to a horse stable after Nazi occupation in 1939, when the Warsaw Ghetto was created the synagogue found itself inside the 'Small Ghetto' and was one of three synagogues allowed to operate on the massive territory of the Ghetto, and reopened on Rosh Hashanah, 1941. Devastated during the Uprisings, the synagogue nonetheless remained standing and was even able to be quickly renovated and used for worship after the war. A full restoration back to its prewar appearance took place in 1977-83 and the synagogue is still in use by Warsaw's Jewish community today. A small shop selling kosher goods can also be found here.
