From the English foreword: “This book is a survey of those synagogues about which we have reliable evidence of their destruction. They are presented in the order of their erection which is consistent with their stylistic development. This will give the reader not only a more or less accurate picture of the ‘work of destruction,’ but mainly a retrospective description of the development of the art of Polish Jewry, one of the most interesting and richest chapters in the history of Jewish art in the Diaspora.” OCLC: 466193874. Ex-library with minimal marks, Very Good Condition thus. (YIZ-22-18-E).
