Summary

The Great Synagogue of Lodz was a Reform Jewish synagogue, built in 1881. It was designed by Adolf Wolff and was an exact replica of the Königsberg Temple.

The synagogue was completely burned to the ground by the Nazis on the night of November 14, 1939, along with its Torah scrolls and interior fixtures. It was dismantled in 1940. Today, the site is used as a parking lot.
