The Brzenziny town synagogue which was destroyed by the Nazis during the war.

Located near Lodz, the town of Brzeziny had a Jewish majority - 6,850 of 13,000 inhabitants as late as 1939. During the Nazi occupation a ghetto was established (Feb. 1940) which held nearly 6,000 people and was liquidated on 19 - 20 May 1942. Elderly Jews were sent to Chelmno and the rest to the Lodz ghetto.
