The Torah Ark in the Włodawa Great Synagogue
The magnificent Torah Ark in the Great Synagogue.
Wlodawa was one of the largest Jewish communities in Europe prior to the World War II. Most of the Jews residing there were sent to Sobibor. With few Jews still residing in the city, the synagogue is no longer in use as a place of worship. As such it was converted to into a museum.
