Zalaegerszeg, synagogue (1904)

Zalaegerszeg, synagogue (1904)

The synagogue fell into disrepair after World War II, and with no Jewish population left to use it, was bought by the city. It's is now a concert and exhibition center following its restoration in the 1970s and '80s. We were on our way to a small village in the area, and I had read about this synagogue, so this was all we stopped to look at in the town as it was getting late and the light low.
