The "Great Synagogue" in Katowice, Poland #general

David Kriger <dssd.kriger@...>


I was in Katowice, Poland on business recently. I came across the
'Synagogue Plaza' (now an open-air market), and a monument in it that
marked the location of the "Great Synagogue" and memorialized the Jewish
community. The monument was in Polish and Hebrew, and noted that the
synagogue was destroyed in September 1939.

I was able to find a short article on Katowice in the Encyclopedia
Judaica, but I wonder if someone could point me to another source; and
perhaps also to a photograph of the synagogue. (I am pleased to e-mail,
in exchange, photographs of the monument.)

Thank you.
