  Commemorative plaque for the Ashkenazi Synagogue in Virovitica, Croatia

© Center for Jewish Art, Photographer: Levin, Vladimir, 2021

Two marble plaques are placed on a modern building constructed on the site of the synagogue. 

The left plaque is inscribed in Croatian: "Na ovom mjestu / stajala je sinagoga / virovitičke židovske zajednice / sagrađena 1863. godine, / a srušena početkom drugog / svjetskog rata 1941. godine. / Virovitica, 1996. godina" (On this place stood the synagogue of the Jewish community of Virovitica, built in 1863, destroyed in the beginning of the Second World War in 1941. Virovitica, 1996).

The right plaque is inscribed in Hebrew. The original plaque, documented in 2000, was made with typos:

הקהילה היהודית וירוביטיצה / במקום זה [ע](צ)מד בית הכנסת / של קהילת יהודי וירוביטיצה / נ(י)בנה ב[ש]נת 1863 / נחרב בתחילת מלחמת ה[ע](צ)ולם השניה / בשנת 1941 / וירוביטיצה: תשרי 5757 ליצירה

(Jewish Community of Virovitica. On this place stood the synagogue of the Jewish community of Virovitica, built in 1863, destroyed in the beginning of the Second World War in 1941. Virovitica: Tishrei of the year 5757 from the creation.)

By 2021, the Hebrew plaque was perlaced by a new one, with almost identical text without typos:

הקהילה היהודית וירוביטיצה / במקום זה עמד בית הכנסת / של ק"ק וירוביטיצה / ביהע"נ נבנה בשנת 1863 ונחרב בתחילת מלחמת / העולם השניה בשנת 1941 / וירוביטיצה: תשרי 5757 ליצירה

(Jewish Community of Virovitica. On this place stood the synagogue of the holy community of Virovitica. The synagogue was built in 1863 and destroyed in the beginning of the Second World War in 1941. Virovitica: Tishrei of the year 5757 from the creation.)

Both inscriptions are surmounted by Magen David.
