Buchbeschreibung [Danzig] : C. Bäcker., 1933. Paperback. 1st Edition. 8vo. 32 pages ; 25 cm. With 12 additional plates of photographs. Title translates into English as, "The Collection of Jewish Art Objects of the Synagogue Community in Danzig. " An exhibition catalog with ritual and historic objects from the Great Synagogue in Danzig. "The Great Synagogue Danzig was the largest synagogue of the city, which was built in the years 1885-1887 at the former Reitbahnstrasse (today's street Boguslawskiego) . It was planned for 2000 church visitors and designed in a neo-Renaissance style . The inauguration took place on 15 September 1887 by the rabbi Cossmann Werner In April 1939, the synagogue was destroyed at the instigation of the Danzig authorities. After the anti-Jewish riots of Kristallnacht of 9/10 November 1938 in Germany, similar riots took place on 12/13 November in Danzig. The Great Synagogue was taken over and demolished by the local authorities in 1939. Most Jews had already left the city, and the Jewish Community of Danzig decided to organize its own emigration in early 1939." (Wikipedia, 2017) This 1933 exhibition took place during the period at which Danzig was an semi-autonomous city-state known as "The Free City of Danzig. " This historical period in Danzig’s history has been brought to life by Günter Grass’ Danzig Trilogy, including "The Tin Drum. " "In 1933, the city's government was taken over by the local Nazi Party, which suppressed the democratic opposition. Due to anti-Semitic persecution and oppression, many Jews fled. After the German invasion of Poland in 1939, the Nazis abolished the Free City and incorporated the area into the newly formed Reichsgau of Danzig-West Prussia. The Nazis classified the Poles and Jews living in the city as subhumans, subjecting them to discrimination, forced labor, and extermination. Many were sent to death at Nazi concentration camps, including nearby Stutthof (now Sztutowo, Poland) . " (Wikipedia, 2017) SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Poland -- Gdansk -- Exhibitions.
