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, Photos of Przeworsk - before 1944, 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.
Many people in the town said there had never been a synagogue there, only in
nearby towns. The Przeworsk Synagogue did exist and there are photos of the
Synagogue taken before 1944 . Mr.Thomas, a local teacher called the Synagogue
"beautiful" several times, and said it dated from the 1600s.
In " Photos of Przeworsk - 2005 " you can see the building that stands where the Przeworsk Synagogue once did.
