Zamosc

(Link)
Not much. It hasn't been seriously damaged by WWII, it is still a medium-sized town, and there are very few remains of Jewish life in it.

The synagogue, as I wrote, still stands, the structure undamaged. The interior is lightly damaged (some decorations painted on the wall have been scraped off), and the great prayer hall is now a public library. It looks very jarring, very disharmonic; narrow aisles among stuffed library bookshelves, and high, high above the top of the shelves, the arched ceiling of a Jewish house of prayer, including Jewish motifs painted on the ceiling.

I've only spent about two hours in Zamosc, so I can't tell you much more.
