Two ferocious lions hold the tables of the ten commandments on the ceiling
of the "Golden Rose" .
 Their tongues are red and mean business.

Dear all,

In Lviv (Lwow, Lemberg) are the remains of the most famous and oldest
synagogue in the territory of Ukraine, the “Golden Rose”. Of the
approximately 70 synagogues in the city only two more have survived the
German occupation, almost every guidebook mentions them. Virtually unknown,
however, is a prayer room which is hidden in a basement. Today I was there.

Now I'm already back home in Cologne. My journey came to an end. I thank all
of you for travelling with me - for all the comments and good wishes. See
you at the next trip!
