More on Travnik Synagogue
I have received word that the synagogue I mentioned in Travnik has indeed been demolished. Both my correspondent and local news reports describe it as the old Kalkados synagogue, which was built in 1768 -- but which information supplied to www.jewish-heritage-europe.eu by Ivan Ceresnjes and others says was already demolished in 1860 and replaced by the synagogue that was used as a metal workshop after World War II. The photograph I linked to in an earlier post clearly shows the newer synagogue -- as do photos in local media. I am trying to clarify this.
