Les synagogues d’Europe orientale et centrale

The exhibition looks at the architectural evolution of the synagogues of Eastern and Central Europe (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia) between 1782 and 1944, taking visitors on a journey through time and space that spans much more than architecture alone. A synagogue is not only a place of worship; it is also a communal living space and a symbol of belonging to a community, and such places of worship are therefore a rich source of information when it comes to the evolution of the Jewish way of life since they would play an increasingly central role in the social, economic, cultural and intellectual development of the region until the tragedy
of the Holocaust struck.
