Information about the Synagogue in Preussisch Friedland
The location of the synagogue before 1900 is unknown. The real estate was sold in 1900 for 1,260 RM to Wilhelm Krause, who bought it on condition that he would tear down the old synagogue and another house. A new synagogue was built in 1900 on Stretziner Steet. The cost of the new building was around 33,000 RM, but this did not include the cost of the the interior. Until the beginning of the 19th century, Jews lived outside the city in the "Jewish Alley," between PF and Dobrin. This would explain the old Jewish cemetery in the woods on the south side of the city lake. One stone has the date 1878 on it. The new Jewish cemetery was located on Kesselsee street. The Jewish community had:
262 members in 1885
149 members in 1913
118 members in 1930
118 members in 1933
