This is the only synagogue in Warsaw to have survived the war. Built from1898 on and funded by Zalman Nozyk, a merchant from a wealthy family, it became part of the so-called Small Ghetto during most of the occupation time. Back then, it only survived because it was used as a stable by the Nazis, although it was also damaged during the war. Right after the war, it was handed back to the diminished Jewish community of Warsaw. It was not until 1977 when reconstruction started and in 1983, the synagogue was reopened. Today, it is one of the focus points of Jewish life in Warsaw and seat of several Jewish organizations in Poland.
