This chapter refers to a synagogue building that has stood in Poznan from the Middle Ages and survived the Second World War because it was converted by the Nazis into a swimming pool. The chapter mentions Marcin Libicki, a member of the European Parliament for Poznan, who has called for the synagogue's demolition, while several other buildings that survived the Nazi occupation were demolished after 1945. It also stresses the benefit of recording the Pozan's Jewish architectural history, which shows the importance and the value of preserving its last remnant. The chapter recounts the first synagogue recorded in 1367, which was located near the intersection of modern Szewska and Dominikanska streets in the northern part of the walled town of Poznan. It illustrates the district occupied by Jews in the fifteenth century that was formed by ulica Zydowska, ulica Szewska, and part of ulica Wroniecka.

Keywords:   synagogue building, Poznan, Marcin Libicki, Jewish architectural history, ulica Zydowska, ulica Szewska, ulica Wroniecka
