Photographer's Note

This impressive building was built in 1903-04 as the synagogue of the Jewish community of Zalaegerszeg. Zalaegerszeg is a small city near the border with Austria and Slovenia with about 60 thousand inhabitants. During WWII the building was severely damaged, and the Jewish community greatly reduced by the Holocaust, so it stopped functioning as a synagogue. The city purchased and reconstructed it to its original form, and was opened as a concert and exhibition hall in 1983. Inside a memorial plaque was placed on the wall in 1989. It says: “In memory of the over one thousand victims of Zalaegerszeg Israelite community”.
