In Lviv, at the site of the destroyed synagogue officials allowed the Garden to build a business center

Во Львове на месте разрушенной синагоги чиновники Садового разрешили построить бизнес-центр

In Lviv, on the street Sanshi, there is a place where once was the Jewish synagogue. Two years ago we bought the building a private developer and planned to build business center. Because of the protests of residents and of the Jewish community this has not happened. But recently also started work.

This was discussed in the broadcast news program “First on the main. Lions” on TV ZIK.

Citizen of Lviv Taras lives in a house close to the future construction. Residents are protesting because they are afraid that they will lack of light in the apartments, and the new building will destroy their housing.

“Our house is in a semi-emergency condition. It has a through the cracks. That is why it can be dangerous,” – said a resident of the street Sanski Taras Fostac.

In addition, the fact that officials agreed the building where there was a synagogue, I assume nepotism.

“We have a very big suspicion that the decision to withhold information on this structure is associated with the last name Shvets is the author of the project, as well as the boss of the historic environment Ms. Onishchenko,” said Fostiak.

Liliya Onyshchenko, head of historic environment, terse. Says, while there is nothing to build, and about the kinship did not want to chat.

“I don’t think the construction will be agreed. Now it there will not be any, until the position of the three parties agreed,” said the chief of the historic environment of Lviv Lily Onishchenko.

City officials add that the construction of an office center will begin only after the consent of the Jewish community. But there are outraged by the actions of officials who defy common history. And offer the site of the temple “Hassidim Shul” to arrange the social space.

“Worst of all, they want to do is commercialize the remnants of the Jewish cultural heritage. This is contrary to the decision 37 and 39 sessions of UNESCO, which are devoted to Lviv decision”, – said the representative of the Jewish community of Sachet mails.

Build in the buffer zone of the UNESCO plans Roman Trush. His lawyer explains that the client has all the documents for the construction of four-storey office center. Promise to make the facade of the new building which matches the architecture. Also do not mind to give first floor for the remains of the synagogue.

“We had several meetings on the device of a Museum for the Jewish community, or placing on the facade of the future built at home plate-information that in this place there was a synagogue,” commented the developer’s lawyer Michael Steranka.

Archaeologists say they came to the territory after the beginning of the construction works and conducted only a partial study.

“The situation Sansai, 4 well illustrates the General state of pamyatnika-security Affairs in Lviv. Ban is not possible. Even if the archaeologists find something unique, it can be written in the basement of the station. That is up there might be new construction. Must spend archeology. Don’t we have to convince, and it must come from the officials. Therefore, it is unclear whose fault of the customer, prolobbiroval insights interested officials,” – said the archaeologist “Rescue archaeological service” Oleg Osaulyuk.

And while the conversations between all parties to the conflict futile, and valuable artifacts are behind closed doors.

By the way, according to the Center for urban history of the first Hasidic prayer house in Lviv was actually a synagogue, “Shul of the Hasidim”. She appeared in 1791 a force of Jewish suburban community. The original temple was made of wood; wooden he was in the middle of XIX century, as recorded on the cadastral plan of Lviv 1849. Stone synagogue, “Shul of the Hasidim” emerged in the second half of the nineteenth century. The synagogue was destroyed during the pogrom in November 1918, when burned the entire Jewish quarter in the street Bonica (present vul. Sanska). Then was burned the interior and damaged the facades. The destroyed building was rebuilt in the draft Orleans Henryk (Henryk Orlean). However, in 1941 it was blown up by the Nazis.
