Annotation
Jewish ethnographic expedition of S. A. An-sky. A synagogue built in the late 17th century. It was one of the most known in Eastern Europe for its unique paintings of the walls and ceiling. In 1913, S. A. An-sky came to Mogilev on purpose to see and photograph the synagogue’s murals. In 1908, pictures of the synagogue and its murals had been taken by A. A. Miller, employee of the Department of Ethnography (see Nos. 1308-1, 1308-2/2, 1308-3, 5769-2).
