Project to shore up ground beneath Auschwitz shul
|Follow j. on||and|
A project to reinforce the ground beneath the only synagogue at the Auschwitz memorial and state museum will begin this spring.
Tomasz Kuncewicz, director of the Auschwitz Jewish Center, the site of the former Nazi death camp, told the Associated Press that the Lomdei Mishnayot Synagogue project would cost approximately $330,000. He said the site was in danger of collapse unless the sloping ground beneath it was reinforced.
The synagogue was reopened in September 2000 following a $12 million renovation and the addition of a cultural center. — jta
