The website Jewish Heritage Europe reports on the local initiative in Susz (Poland) to establish a museum of local history in the building of the synagogue in the West and East Prussian town of Rosenberg.
Since this town belonged to the German region of East Prussia between 1920 and 1939, the association Juden in Ostpreussen (Jews in East Prussia) has obtained documents from the Centrum Judaicum (Berlin) and the State Archive in Olsztyn (Poland) which provide information about the construction of the synagogue and the Jewish community. We are currently translating the material and preparing it for the exhibition. We have also made contact with descendants and expect that some of them will come to the opening of the museum. We also support financially the exemplary efforts of the local association to breathe new life into this beautiful building. Only very few synagogue buildings in East Prussia survived the November pogrom in 1938. We are looking forward to the exhibition in this historic border region with a very changeful history.
