Lapis super lapidem non reliquentur hic, a w polskiej wersji: nie pozostanie tu kamień na kamieniu...
Słowa, które sprawdziły się i wciąż sprawdzają w Jerozolimie...
Słowa, które sprawdziły się i wciąż sprawdzają w Polsce...
Tam pozostała tylko Ściana Płaczu, dniem i nocą pilnowana przez uzbrojonych po zęby żołnierzy...
Tutaj pozostały przewrócone groby, ruiny synagog i tablice pamięci, które czasem tak trudno zawiesić...
Pięć tysięcy lat historii, bez ustanku walczącej z piachem Negevu...
Tysiąc lat historii odesłanej do nieba w mniej lub bardziej wydajnych spalarniach...
Ofiara dziękczynna złożona wspólnemu Bogu w imię wiecznego rozdzielenia,
W imię kamiennych macew utwardzających fundamenty polskich dróg
W imię małych kamyków przybywających z całego świata i układanych na polskich - żydowskich cmentarzach...
Kiedy pisaliśmy naszą aplikację do programu Interreg III A, kiedy dostaliśmy zielone światło na realizację projektu „Wielokulturowe Tatry”, kiedy organizowaliśmy festiwal w Myślenicach w czerwcu, wiele osób pytało nas, po co to robimy?
Ta wystawa jest odpowiedzią, a właściwie jedną z tysięcy możliwych odpowiedzi. Dedykujemy ją wszystkim tym, którzy nie potrafią się pogodzić...

 Panel 1 – Ružomberok
This abandoned synagogue, built in 1880, is situated in the centre of the town. There is fine architectural detail in the Rundbogen style – a forerunner of modern utilitarian styles of architecture, with fine surviving stained glass windows.

 Panel 2 – Liptovský Mikuláš
This wonderful synagogue in classical style was erected initially in 1846, for the active, well integrated Jewish community in the town. LM was the first town in Hungary to choose a Jewish mayor, in 1865. The present building is the result of rebuilding undertaken in 1906 by the Budapest architect Louis Baumhorn. There are plans to restore the building as the Slovak Holocaust Museum.

 Panel 3 – Grybów
Ruins of the synagogue. The Jewish Gmina in Krakow has just started the reconstruction of the building.

 Panel 4 – Grybów
Ruined interior of the synagogue. The Grybów hassids (over 900 souls) belonged to the Sączer dynasty and one of the Grybów rabbis even became Tzaddik in Nowy Sacz.

 Panel 20 – Gorlice
Jewish cemetery (2 photos).

 Panel 21 - Nowy Targ
a. Graffiti on the wall of the former synagogue (currently a cinema). The Jews of Nowy Targ were the largest Jewish community in Podhale. The very assimilated element in the community (over 800 from 1500 in the Community) prayed here, although it is difficult today to recognize the synagogue. These were the Jewish aristocracy. The remainder, for the most part Bobowa hassids, prayed in small private prayer houses.
b. Jewish cemetery.

 Panel 22 – Limanowa
Graves in the cemetery (2 photos). Jews comprised over half the population of this town before the War.

 Panel 23 – Biecz
Former synagogue currently the Town Hall. (2 photos) Throngs of relatives and well-wishers greeted us at the Biecz train station. All the men had long beards. They were dressed in black suits with vests and large black hats. The women wore black dresses down to their ankles, heads covered with wigs. The boys wore sidelocks, knickers and caps. It looked like all one hundred-sixty Jewish families in the shtetl had gathered on the platform. …The shtetl of Biecz reminded me of pictures of villages in America before the automobile - horses, wagons and dogs everywhere - smoke swirling from chimneys, no indoor plumbing or street lights. (An American, Mark Jakoby, writing about a visit to the family town of his father in 1936)

 Panel 24 – Stary Sącz
Synagogue. Interior and exterior views.

 Panel 25 – Nowy Sącz

May his soul be bound with the souls of the living. (Translation: Arnold Roth, son of a holocaust survivor from Myslenice).

 Panel 36 – Bobowa
Jewish cemetery in the town (3 photos).

 Panel 37 – Wiśniowa
The old synagogue in Wisniowa is a treasure which we should give particular attention to protecting. There are not many wooden synagogues left in Poland, and in this part of the country there is only this one which could be included in the development of a trail on Jewish religious architecture.

 Panel 38 – Bobowa
SYnagogue – view from the rear. There is a hasidic court where one of the descendant lines of the Saczer dynasty was based. Reduced after the War to about 300 souls, the dynasty recovered to become one of the most active hasidic communities in the World. It has its headquarters in Borouigh Park, New York. The synagogue was returned to the Jewish community and it has been restored by the Halberstam family and again serves as a meeting place and place of prayer for hasidic groups coming to Bobowa.

 Panel 39 – Mszana Dolna
Matseva of a levite.The jugs used by levites to wash the hands of the cohanim are symbols that are often found on matsevas.

Matseva with two lions.

 Panel 41 – Bobowa
Internal view of the synagogue during restoration work.

 Panel 42 – Bobowa
Synagogue from the front. Wooden synagogues and prayer houses were once a common feature in the Polish countryside. Unfortunately the front of Bobowa synagogue and the Wisniowa prayer house are the only remaining examples of this tradition in southern Poland. One can still see other individual examples of wooden synagogues in Ukraine and Lithuania.
