The synagogue in Lesko

Lesko
Culture

The synagogue in Lesko is the most picturesque synagogue of the Jewish community in Podkarpacie, a place of the remains of Jewish culture. It was built in the 16th century on the site of the old synagogue, but during World War II it was completely devastated and only from the 1960s it began to undergo gradual renovation. It owes its beauty to an intriguing, unusual shape with a wavy facade and a round tower. The tower, situated on the side of the city, used to be an observation point, and the dungeons were used as a Jewish prison. At the western wall there is a „women's gallery", where women could watch the men's prayer room, to which they were not allowed, through special windows. On the external façade there are tablets of Moses with commandments and the sentence: „What a fear this place fills! Nothing else here but the house of God and the gate of heaven”. Currently, the building of the former synagogue houses the Art Gallery of Bieszczady artists, and in the annex the Museum of the Jews of Galicia.

Cisna
Culture

The monument „To those who died in the struggle to consolidate the people's power” in Cisna is located in one of the most characteristic places in the Bieszczady Mountains, where the main tourist trail of the Beskids runs. In the center of Cisna, on the Bethlehem Hill, there is a monument from 1965, devoted to „the fallen in the struggle to consolidate the people's power”. In the years 1945-46, it housed a civic militia station, attacked by the Ukrainian Insurgent Army. 9 militiamen and 15 members of the village guard from mid-1945 defended the post, and the decisive assault took place on the night of January 11-12, 1946, as a result of which the Bandera followers suffered a defeat. The outpost turned out to be the only outpost in the Bieszczady Mountains that had not been conquered by the Banderites. The monument was rebuilt in 1982. Stone blocks with images of fighting soldiers and militiamen and the names of the places where the battles with UPA bands took place were built. In 2017, a new plaque was placed: „Defenders of Cisna and the Neighborhood in 1944-47 against the Ukrainian Insurgent Army – Community of the Cisna Commune”.

The Icon Gallery in Cisna

Cisna
Culture

The Icon Gallery in Cisna is the Bieszczadzka Pracownia Veraikon and the Gallery, which have been run by Jadwiga Denisiuk for 30 years. The artist writes icons (icons are not painted) in accordance with the canon and medieval technique adopted in the Orthodox religion, approved by the Second Council of Nicaea, consisting in the use of yolk tempera, which is obtained by mixing dry pigment with water and egg yolk. It is required to use hard wood and a well-primed canvas, thanks to which it is possible to make reliefs, gilding and other background decorations. In the gallery you can find icons: Ruthenian – ascetic, Balkan – joyful, Greek and contemporary. Jadwiga Denisiuk's favorite icon is the miraculous 17th-century icon of the Mother of God from Łopienka. Pope Francis and the Polish church in Irkutsk in Siberia also have icons from Cisna. The works are presented at exhibitions in Poland and abroad, e.g. in France. Icon writing workshops are also held in the gallery.
