An map of Jewish Przemysl

This map is from the inside cover of the Przemysl Yizkor book.

The index on the upper left:
1. Zasanie Synagogue
2. The Temple
3. Kahat – Community congregation
4. Klaus – ???
5. The Old Synagogue
6. Bath house
7. House of Study
8. Scheinbach Synagogue (now the town library)

Only 1 and 8 are still standing. I will post photos of the magnificent Temple and Old Synagogue in a future post. The new Jewish cemetery is located at the bottom of the map on Slowackiego.

My great-grandparents Marcus and Channa lived across from the rail station on Czarnieckiego. Later, this was the part of town that the Nazis made into the Jewish ghetto.

If you click on the map, it will expand.

Shabbat Shalom
