Dijon (French pronunciation: [diʒɔ̃]  ( listen)) is a city in eastern France, the capital of the Côte-d'Or département and of the Burgundy region. Dijon is the historical capital of the province of Burgundy. Population (2005): 150,800 within the city limits; 236,953 for the greater Dijon area.

There was a medieval Jewish community in Dijon, which was expelled in 1394.  After 1789, Jews settled in the town, mainly from Upper Alsace.  The Jewish population numbered 50 families in 1803, 100 in 1869, and about 400 persons in 1902.  About 90 Jews from Dijon died in Auschwitz.  After the war, the Jewish community was rebuilt, and with an influx of Jews from North Africa, the Jewish community, as of 1969, was in excess of 1,000 persons.

The synagogue depicted in the postcard above was dedicated in 1879.  During the Nazi occupation, the synagogue was emptied of its interior and used as a warehouse.
