The White Stork synagogue, which was opened in 1829, derives its name from an inn which had previously stood on the spot where it was erected. The Nazis ransacked the synagogue and devastated its interior.
The synagogue was later turned it into a garage and warehouse. After the war, Poland’s Communist authorities seized control of the synagogue. It was only returned to the Jewish community a decade ago, who began refurbishing it. Wroclaw is home to a very small Jewish community.
