Vysokoye School Children Clean up Synagogue RuinsThe New Shul was the newest of three synagogues in the pre-war town, and was the pride of the Jewish community. Its outer walls were plastered and painted white. The roof was of green masonary. As far as is known, the building survived World War II intact. It is said that some local individuals, desperate for building materials in the post-war devastation, attempted to remove some portions of the building, which was empty and unused. The building collapsed.
This group of Vysokoye School Children, led by their teacher, spontaneously volunteered to do this work, which was supported by a small donation from Henry Neugass.
