Synagogues

Wooden synagogues in Poland were destroyed almost all during the war, many other (stoned synagogues) were destroyed by Nazis during the World War II or Germans used them as store houses, etc...
After the war many synagogues were changed to cinemas, schools, libraries, museums, hospitals, etc. Sometimes they were devastated and destroyed, in some cases they were renovated.
And sometimes you may find in small towns forgotten buildings, ruins now, with trees inside and on the roof... stones don't speak, but sometimes they can tell you much...
