Upper-Silesian Jewish Architecture

I think Jewish Architecture should have some place in SSC. I couldn't find any threads treating about it so I have created one. It treats about JA in Upper Silesia, Poland.

_As_ first I put at synagogue in Katowice, built in 1900, destroyed by Nazis in 1939.









The Synagogue was located on Augustschneider Strasse (now Mickiewicza Street), today there is a monument with description: "for commemoration of Jews, citizens of Katowice, killed by a German occupier in 1939 - 1945 years"



P.S. Thx for Maciek, who allowed me to use his picutres

Most of Silesian synagogues was built on German renaissance style with late gothic reminiscences. They was high (higher than Kazimierz district synagogues) and full of adorments.

The first synagogue in Oppeln was built in 1842.
I was there last summer and bought this book.... Too bad they haven't rebuilt it.

Very Interesting.
I didn't know Jews ever built such a massive structures. I mean, synagogues and things of this order.
Please post some more, if you know any.
