German SIG #Germany Dedication of renovated synagogue in Ostrow Wielkopolski #germany

I recently learned >from the historian of Ostrow Wielkopolski (Ostrowo, Posen)
that the dedication of the renovated Synagogue building, used by the Nazis
as a furniture warehouse, will take place on October 6.

The building, which recently won the national Facade of the Year award
in Poland, will serve as a cultural centre. The presence of descendants
of former Jewish residents of Ostrow Wielkopolski would be most
welcome at the ceremony.

In addition to renovating the synagogue, the City of Ostrow Wielkopolski
has created a memorial wall >from excavated fragments of matzevot.
City historian Mr. Jaroslav Biernaczyk has edited two volumes of essays
on the former Jewish community.

For further information on the "New Synagogue" and renovation project, see:

If you are interested in attending the ceremony, please write to me
for contact information.
