Wieliczka

The synagogue in Wieliczka was abandoned and appeared to be rapidly decaying in 2007.   Ten years later, it appeared to be no worse for further wear and to be in use as an auto mechanic’s garage.

The cemetery in Wielicka is near the former synagogue.  It covers a large plot of ground with extensive and heavy shade from many large, old trees.  The stones were not exciting, and they were difficult to photograph given the shade.  A significant number were down.  Maintenance was not evident; however, the heavy shade apparently inhibited the growth of vegetation.  The cemetery was unsecured, but it did not seem to have suffered from that condition.
