Kazimierz Dolny Former Synagogue

From the 14th century a small Jewish community dwelt in Kazimierz Dolny, relatively peacefully up until the arrival of the Nazis in 1940. A Judenrat was then established, and by 1942 with deportations to Belzec the town was ‘purged’ of Jews. We stayed in the old synagogue, revamped as a small and comfortable hotel steeped in history and atmosphere.
