Lost Treasures: The Wooden Synagogues of Eastern Europe The Lino Cuts of Bill Farran

Wyszokie Mazowieckie, Poland - Original Linocut Wyszokie Mazowieckie, Poland - With Background

Wysokie Mazowieckiee is a small town west of Bialystok. The settlement was first documented in 1239, and received town status in 1502. By the end of the 17th Century or the beginning of the 18th Century the Jews of Wysokie Mazowieckiee were able to build a beautiful synagogue. We know what the synagogue looked like from the research and drawings of Zygmunt Gloger, who was a Polish historian, archaeologist, geographer and ethnographer. The synagogue over the years had entered into a state of disrepair. The structure was dismantled in 1880 to prevent it from caving in. A new modern stone synagogue was built to replace it in 1879.
