  Old Synagogue
by wadekorzan

You'll find this building right next to the Middle Rhine Museum, located on Florinsmarkt Square. This building, originally dating back to the Middle Ages, was used as the local Synagogue until the famous night known as Krystallennacht (Crystal Night), on November 9, 1938. On this date may synagogues were destroyed and the contents inside burned. Nowadays, there is a small Jewish Museum located inside in honor of the Jewish people that once lived in the city, and there is a small library used by the youth of the city. They also hold chamber plays inside the building on certain occasions.

Especially beautiful is its beautiful baroque roof with the many small windows once used for ventilation.
