Oppeln (now Opole, Poland) was located in Upper Silesia. The Synagogue was built in neo-moorish style by the Breslau architect Felix Henry from 1894-1897. Rabbi Leo Baeck worked here from 1895-1907 and during this period published his most famous work, Das Wesen des Judentums.The synagogue was destroyed during Kristallnacht in 1938. A british officer painted this while occupying the area after World War I. He was quartered in firehouse of Dr. Fritz Lustig, who acquired the painting, which later passed into the family of the donor.
