Jewish quarter

Southwest of the square lies the former Jewish quarter, whose inhabitants were driven from their tenements during the Third Reich. One of the largest synagogues in Poland, the Synagoga pod Białym Bocianem (Synagogue Under the White Stork), lies hidden in a courtyard at ul. Włodkowica 9. Visits can be arranged through the Jewish Information Centre (Mon–Thurs 10am–5pm, Fri 10am–4pm, Sun 11am–4pm; 6zł; 71/787 3902).
