Dom Pamięci Żydów Górnośląskich to nowo utworzony oddział Muzeum w Gliwicach, powstały w dawnym domu przedpogrzebowym, mieszczącym się na terenie cmentarza żydowskiego. Budynek znajduje się w gliwickiej dzielnicy Zatorze przy ul. Poniatowskiego, obok Cmentarza Lipowego.
The history of the Gliwice Jews dates back to the seventeenth century, but in greater numbers, they began to settle here a hundred year later. The first synagogue was founded in 1812, and in 1861, another one was opened. The new Jewish cemetery, located at Poniatowski street, was founded in 1902 - 1903, because due to the tremendous growth of the Jewish population the old cemetery at Na Piasku Street became too small. Originally, the new cemetery area was 2.5 hectares.
The Church of Christ the King in Gliwice is one of the most interesting interwar, sacral buildings in Silesia. The church was built in the district of Zatorze in 1934-35. It is made of brick. It was designed by the architect Karl Mayr, who gave an expressionist-modernist shape to it. Inside the church there are very interesting, original, pre-war stained glass windows and a fresco depicting Christ the King (by Karl Platzek).
"The wooden transmitting tower of the radio station in Gliwice is a marvel of engineering and prewar thought and the testimony of its builders’ courage. With a height of 111 m, it now occupies the first place on the list of the world's tallest structures, built entirely of wood. It was built in 1935
within the premises of the newly created broadcasting station at Tarnogórska Street. On August 31, 1939, the building was the scene of a provocation carried out by officers of the Nazi SS, known in historiography as the “Gleiwitz incident”."
The first mention of the Jewish settlers in Gliwice comes from
the seventeenth century. In the eighteenth century, there were
several Jewish families in the city. In 1812, they built their first
synagogue. Three years later, they founded the oldest
cemetery at the current Na Piasku Street. About 500
gravestones, mostly made of sandstone, have survived. The
most magnificent is the neo-Classicist mausoleum of the Meyer
family. Many members of the known Troplowitz family were on
