To mark the 25th anniversary of the fall of communism, the Wrocław edition of Gazeta Wyborcz newspaper is organizing a poll as to the major event in the region in the past quarter century. The restoration and re-opening of the historic White Stork Synagogue is one of the 15 nominees. Inaugurated in 1829 and designed by Carl Ferdinand Langhans, the synagogue was seriously damaged on Kristallnacht but not torched because of its proximity to other buildings. The Nazis converted it into an auto repair garage and warehouse for stolen Jewish property.
