Biecz

One of this town's many tourist attractions is the synagogue erected in 1905 and located in the main square at No 20. It is now home to the Town Council, the local administration and alibrary. The building is easily recognisable by its semi-circular windows and pink elevation. In one of the halls you can still see the recess for the aron ha-kodesh. In ul. Tysiaclecia you will find adozen or so matzevot and anumber of mass graves from during the war. This is all that remains of the cemetery.
