The complex of three- and four-storey buildings erected in the years 1918, 1924 and 1931. At the corner buttress of the building there are plaques with inscriptions in Hebrew and Polish commemorating that it used to house a primary school (5 Brzozowa Street), Chaim Hilfstein's Hebrew Gymnasium (8/10 Podbrzezie Street) of the Jewish Society of Folk and Secondary School in Kraków. The Gymnasium taught general subjects in Polish, and Judaic subjects in Hebrew. High level of education was guaranteed by excellent teaching staff that included: Hirsz Szerer, mathematician and school director; Juliusz Feldhorn, teacher of Polish studies, poet and translator of French and German literature; Chaim Löw, also teacher of Polish studies and writer; Joachim Metallman, natural scientist and senior lecturer of the Jagiellonian University; and Bencjon Katz, Hebraist and lecturer of this language at the Jagiellonian University.
