Pictures of Jewish Lviv.

Having visited Lviv last year I can recognize several photos.
Pictures #1 and #2 are of a pre-World War II synagogue which is now
a Chabad synagogue and Jewish Community center. Note the blue paint
splatter and the broken windows resulting >from vandalism.

The domed building in photos #6 and #7 is the former Jewish Hospital.
It is still used as a hospital. Photo #15 (next to last) is the site
of a destroyed synagogue. The last photo (#16) is a former synagogue
which was converted into a gymnasium by the Russian government after
WWII. It is now unused but may be returned to the Jewish community.
