Photos of Przeworsk - before 1944


Submitted by Suzanne A. Wertheim . Photos taken in June 2005 during her visit to Przeworsk.

These photos are part of a large collection of photos submitted by Ms Wertheim. They can be seen throughout the Przeworsk webpage under several headings, including:

Maps, Photos of Przeworsk - 2005, The Przeworsk Synagogue, Przeworsk Cemetery, and The Rebbes of Przeworsk.


There are no definite dates for when these photos were taken but they were certainly taken in the early 1920's and definitely pre-WW11 . Mr. Thomas a school teacher living in Przeworsk was very helpful in identifying the photos.

Jewish Stores / Commercial Center. Mr. Thomas couldn't remember what was sold there. (He was very young when the war started).


Mr. Thomas explained that there are three streets where Jews lived before WW11:  Kazimerzowska, Kilinskiego and Bernardynska. These are all in the old downtown south of Jagiellonska and just north of the Rynek.   The Photos bellow are all of Jewish streets.  Mr. Thomas was only able to identify one:  Kazimerzowska.  It looks today much like it did when the photo was taken in the early 1920's
