The only Danzig synagogue to survive World War II, the New Langfuhr Synagogue on Mirchauer Weg is now used primarily as a music school, with some space for and temporary holiday use by the Jewish Community of Gdańsk. In addition to functioning as a synagogue, the building also had rooms for several Jewish organizations. During the War, it was used as a warehouse of the firm Bernhard Hagemann and Sons, contributing to its survival. This front view shows the entrance to the music school and a banner advertising the traveling exhibition "And I still see their faces" of the Shalom Foundation, on display inside during Jul-Aug 2007.
