Synagogue/Society Description: Split’s Synagogue was established during the early 16th Century into the western wall of Diocletian’s palace, followed by Jews escaping the purges in Spain and Portugal. The synagogue is the second oldest continuously used Sephardic Synagogue in the world. The smaller plaque commemorates Jewish partisans and the larger one is the list of Jews lost within 10 days of the Germans taking over from the Italians despite escape routes being offered.
