The Monument of the Great Synagogue

It is an important testimony of the citys history. The monument, located in a former Jewish district Szulhof, commemorates the Great Synagogue and the tragic fate of about 700 Jews who were locked in it when it was burnt to the ground on the day the Nazis entered Bialystok on June 27, 1941.

Most of the district burnt down along with the synagogue. A monument in a shape of cupola of the burnt temple reminds of the tragedy and induces reflection.
