Israeli Couple Privately Document 350 Synagogues Used in Pre-Holocaust Europe

FSWC Reports:


Rivka and Ben-Zion Dorfman, both more than 90 years old, dedicated 70 weeks of their life to photograph and document more than 350 synagogues in Europe that were deserted after the Holocaust.

The couple handed their life's work over to the Yad Vashem Archives, where staff will continue tracing the lost communities through the ruined synagogues.
