73 years ago today, the British official rav Bimenfield reopened the synagogue for the first service after the end of the #SecondWorldWar. It was the end of the #Shoah.
People around him are the few members of the community who could reach Venice for the service 4 days after the #Liberation.
A few more had been hiding and would come back in the following days; others, 246 people, would not come back.
